KAO Optical Products

Profile:
The US Compact Disc manufacturing branch of KAO Infosystems Co. started its business after acquiring the Lancaster, PA plant American Helix in 1993. They expanded soon with another plant in Dublin, Ireland (KAO Ireland) and one in Fremont, CA within a year. They also manufactured audio cassettes.
The Lancaster, PA plant was bought back in 1996 by the original owner of the plant and renamed Echodata Media.

CDs pressed at the Lancaster plant feature Kao-American Helix in the matrix. If they do, please enter them there.
