This product is manufactured in 2015 by Lanman & Kemp-Barclay Co., Inc., whose website gives this account of the history of the company:
"The Company was established in 1808 by Robert I. Murray at Number 313 Pearl Street, New York City, In 1835 said Robert I Murray was joined by D.T. Lanman and the business was conducted under the firm name Murray & Lanman at Number 69 Water Street, in said city. In 1835 the firm name was changed to David T. Lanman and co., and in 1861 to Lanman & Kemp. The three successive firms last named, remained in business at number 69 Water Street, New York City, until 1870 when the business moved to number 68 Williams St. in said city, where it remained until 1900 in which it moved to 135 Water St. New York City.
"Continuously from the years 1861 to 1920 the business was conducted under the firm name of Lanman & Kemp and in the last named year it was Incorporated under the laws of the State of New York, under the title of Lanman & Kemp. In 1957 because of the rise in sale of our products the facility had to be enlarged, therefore it was resolved to move to 15 Grand Ave., Palisades Park, New Jersey and later on moved to 25 Woodland Ave., Westwood, New Jersey the present address of the company."
