Keel Mfg. Corp.

Keel Mfg. Corp.

Profile:
Defunct Long Island record manufacturer/pressing facility which was located in Hauppauge, NY (USA). A division of Pickwick International, Inc., they at one time produced more than 25 million records per year and were also known as K. M. Corp., K.M. Corporation, Keel Manufacturing, Inc. ("Keel"), KEEL Manufacturing Corp., and Keel Manufacturing Division. Keel sourced nickel electroplated masters from Mastercraft Record Plating, Inc., and vinyl plastic compounds from Woodbridge. The company lasted until mid 1981 when it became Hauppauge Record Manufacturing Ltd..

Through 1973, Keel pressings had a single pressing ring measuring 2.8125". In 1974 a new two-step pressing ring was adopted; the shouldered outer ring measured ~ 2.75" and the inner ring measured 1.1875".

Pressing identifiers are not fully confirmed but some are shared with successor Hauppauge Record Manufacturing Ltd.:
• Number code on labels: 53
• Union jack runout stamp
• K runout etching
Sometimes there won't be any identifiable marking on pressings from
this plant. This is often the case with some of Pickwick International, Inc.'s
sub labels such as De-Lite, and Groove Merchant.
