Yazoo has undergone several major expansions.

Throughout the early years, Yazoo manufactured mattress cord and florist’s thread for funeral wreaths. After the move to Hanover in 1936, production shifted to balls of kite twine and parcel post twines. During the war, Yazoo produced rope handles for ammunition boxes. In the sixties, the market for string and twines declined and the future looked bleak. The company had also been producing its own cores for kite twine. In 1969, management decided to phase out the twine operations and concentrate entirely on the manufacturing of paper cores to sell to different industries.

Since 1969 and the change of product line to paper tubes and cores, Yazoo has undergone several major expansions.
