Key Bellevilles, widely considered to be the largest manufacturer of bellevilles in the world, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review recently sat down with founder and president Robert J. Key, and others, for a feature article on the company.
“Key Bellevilles Inc. has built its 50-year history on one product used in many things — from the mechanical shark in ‘Jaws’ to space shuttles,” the article begins.
According to Key, “[t]here currently are 77 employees, and, while that number is down slightly from a few years ago because of automation, the company hasn't had a layoff in 45 years.”
