Scheu Manufacturing Company produces portable oil and gas-fired heaters for construction, patio, restaurant, and recreational uses under the All-Pro(TM) and Universal(TM) brand names. The new brands join DESA Heating Products' current brands, which include Vanguard(TM), Comfort Glow(TM), Outdoor Leisure(TM), Reddy Heater(TM), Master(TM), FMI(TM), and Glo-Warm(TM).
