MPO

MPO

Perfil:
French pressing plant, manufacturing and distribution company which stemmed from their original pressing plant in Averton (Mayenne), France, established by Pierre Tyrel de Poix in 1957. The 'MPO' acronym remains from the original company; 'Moulages et Plastiques de l'Ouest'. Through expansion, MPO has permanent offices throughout the world, with a strong presence in Europe. The group's operations are structured around its three production sites and logistics centres; MPO Iberica and MPO France (Averton and Villaines La Juhel) and MPO Asia (Bangkok, Thailand) and numerous sales offices in Europe and Asia as well as a partner in the US.

MPO is an acronym for "Moulages Plastiques de l'Ouest" (in English: Western Plastics Castings).

MPO pressed its first commercial CD on 4th of December, 1984.

Vinyl discs pressed by MPO usually have the hand etched "MPO" inscription in the runouts.
Recent presses could also show a stamped logo followed by a string of digits ## ##### (see this image), where the first two digits stands for the pressing year. DO NOT ADD THESE NUMBERS TO LCCN.
Another identifier can be that MPO pressings have three concentric rings around the spindle hole (see this image).
MPO can be credited as M.P.O. on releases.

On cassettes: "Duplication MPO", most often printed on labels.

MPO CDs made at Averton are assigned the following SID codes:
Mastering code: L031, L032, L033, L035, L036, L039, LY88 (often misread as LV88)
Mould code : 12##

MPO isn't always explicitly mentioned in the CD matrix, but can sometimes be identified by a string of tiny text with the following format:
CA [label cat#] [one or more @] IFPI [mastering SID code] M/D/YYYY HH:MM:SS [AM/PM] NNNNNNNNNN
(This isn't usually allowed, but there was forum discussion for doing this for MPO in particular.) If you aren't sure, please ask in the forums.)

So far a big drop in quality for 2019. I really hope they will add some stuff to control their products.

I think their standards have dropped this year. I wrote a mostly positive review of their output back in 2018 but I've not been impressed with the releases I've heard from them this year. Their pressing of Aldous Harding's Designer was one of the worst sounding new LPs I've ever heard and their reissue of Gomez's Liquid Skin is solid but did need a lot of cleaning to become acceptable - and, even then, it isn't as clean as their pressing of the same band's 'Bring It On' from last year. I'm not sure what's gone wrong as I've almost always been very happy with their pressings in the past.

I have noticed that not all MPO pressed vinyl has the 3 concentric rings around the spindle hole. Does anyone know when they started or stopped doing this. Also, does anyone know when they started or stopped pressing vinyl with the raised ridges around the edge of the center labels. I have multiple pressings of the same records that were all pressed by MPO and I am trying to figure out ways to distinguish which order the pressings came in. Thanks for any help with this.

In the past 7 or 8 months, every single MPO record I have purchased has been faulty. Records are either off centre or have non-fill issues and in some cases, have both: Prince-Originals (Just bought the £60 deluxe version) -non-fill on side 1 and the record is off centre, Dixie Chicks-Taking the Long Way (3 copies-non-fill), Prince 3121 (4 copies all had non-fill on side 1, 2 of them were off centre), Prince-Planet Earth (2 copies non-fill on side 1), Willie Nelson-Ride Me Back Home (2 copies non-fill on side 1), Marianne Faithfull-Negative Capability (3 copies all had non-fill on both sides), Bruce Springsteen on Broadway (2 copies, non-fill on at least side 1 - I couldn't be bothered to listen to it after the 12th scrape of my stylus against the poorly formed grooves). I could go on and on but I won't. MPO's quality control is simply not there and as far as I am concerned, they form the unholy trinity of bad pressing houses in Europe with GZ at the top, Optimal (formerly excellent and now consistently bad) and MPO who in the 90s were excellent and are now generally terrible.

as a collector i clean most records before playing even when Mint as i have noticed the pressings are dirty and look used till cleaned and then only 50% are truly Mint,, more care should be taken in packaging but just to say MPO may press the records but the producers are skimping on Inners and Jackets and a lot of Roots and Culture Music is put out with generic paper sleeves as requested by the producers,, then they are shipped around, taken from dance to dance and end up looking battered,, i have had some pressings that have looked used, could of been re shrink wrapped and then the sellers claim they bought them sealed,, also with limited pressings i have found out the French are saying only 500 copies available then press up 1000! so 500 get sold on the market and the rest sold as Test Press or Commercial press as i was told by a producer how the pressing contract works so they get a few more copies sometimes when pressed normally but to say there are only 500 and then sell more on the side,, the record pressing business has gone to the Dogs as we say in the UK,,,

The pressings from the Rolling Stones box set (Abbey Road/ Miles Showell) pressed at MPO are terrible. All that and the stamper destroys it.

They may have new stamping machines now... their new pressings don't have the "three concentric rings"

My thoughts on MPO are that they're a curiously inconsistent plant. I have quite a number of releases from them and some are merely acceptable whilst others are, frankly, superb. At their best, I think they're preferable to either GZ Media or Optimal and I would say their overall quality control is better from my experience than either of those, however they're definitely not as consistently excellent as Record Industry. I've had records from them that suffer from a fairly high noise floor and intermittent crackling, but I've had more records with barely a flaw to mention. Overall, I'd say I generally find them to be one of the better European pressing plants, but they're not above putting out the occasional disappointing release (though, to be honest, I don't think there's many plants that are - I've even heard one or two underwhelming presses from Pallas and RTI).
