What does MK mean?

MK Electric is an electrical devices and accessories manufacture headquartered in Basildon, Essex, England, United Kingdom. On February 10, 1919, Charles Arnold founded the Heavy Current Electric Accessories Company. Multy Kontact socket, patented by Charles Arnold was the flagship product of the company at that time.
Multy Kontact socket (3-pin socket) soon became a market leader and the British Engineering Standards Association (BESA) changed standards to adopt this new product. The company was then renamed MK Electric after its flagship product. Before the Multy Kontact socket all that was available was split pin-style sockets. They were mostly made from thick gauge slotted brass tubes, offering practically no flexibility. Large pins, on the other hand, needed too much force to insert and remove them. Multy Kontact was better and safer. No-one knows why it was decided to spell Multy with a y rather than an i or Kontact with a k rather than a C. Just as well they did though, since the whole company eventually got named MK Electric after that one product.
