It's complicated. In 1945, Donald M. Grant and Thomas P. Hadley founded the small press Grant-Hadley Enterprises in Providence, RI to publish hardcover SF. In 1946, Ken Krueger who was in the Army and stationed in Providence joined and it was renamed the Buffalo Book Company. Then, later that same year, Grant went off to college and Krueger moved back to Buffalo and Hadley continued on his own as Hadley Publishing Co., though Grant continued to advise him.
Ted Carnell was British representative for Hadley Publishing Co. At the 1947 Worldcon, Philcon I, Hadley Publishing Co. was the main sponsor of a room party which was remembered for being especially drunken. (See Fireworks.)
