Default Mason-Kipp?

Came across a 1904 ad for a Mason-Kipp Mfg. Co., Madison, Wisconsin and the Norris Mfg. Co.. It is the tall style, single feed mechanical lubricator as used on steam.
Was that name used, or was it an error in the ad?

I believe the company started out in Illinois with that name and then changed to Madison Kipp when they moved to Wisconsin.

Mason-Kipp Manufacturing,
Madison, Wisconsin, 1902

The fledgling company, the Original "O.G. Kipp Mfg. Company" merged with the Mason Lubricator Co. in 1902 to become Mason-Kipp Manufacturing Co., and company operations moved to Madison, Wisconsin.

In 1905, Mason-Kipp Lubricator Company officially changed its name to Madison-Kipp Lubricator Company.

Picture of the Original O.G. Kipp Mfg. Company plant on right side of building around 1900 in Rochelle, IL

This was the start of the Mechanical Lubricator "before" Mason-Kipp

Madison-Kipp’s roots date back to 1898, when Oliver G. Kipp invented the first force-feed mechanical lubricator. He partnered with W.H Putnam, Charles Putnam and George Ackland to manufacture the old-style B lubricator as the O.G. Kipp Manufacturing Co.

Don and Jason,
Thank you for the information and for your kind help. That is very interesting.
I like the old mechanical lubricators. They are things of beauty and fun to work on!

This building still stands there along with the railroad tracks. That is where Corporate is located.

Thirty or more years ago, I dealt directly with Kipp Industries of Madison for lubricator parts. They had everything to rebuild a Model 50.
