Although Mitsui Toatsu initially manufactured discs in Japan, most of those
sold in the U.S. came from their facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It
was later sold and operated under the "MAM-A" name. A similar operation in
Europe operated as "MAM-E". Some pretty good stuff came out of Colorado in
the early years.
