30 Years of Key Production

This year, Key Production has been busy creating an evocative online magazine (hosted on ISSUU) which features historical highlights, nostalgic images and filmed interviews with current and past employees, some of whom will be familiar to the music industry community. The content is proof of the firm’s dedication to nurturing relationships - with both clients and its own team. In fact, most of Key’s staff of around 60 have worked there for over 20 years!
