EMI Electrola GmbH

EMI Electrola GmbH

Profile:
German subdivision of EMI Records from 1972 to 2002, responsible holding company of the EMI Electrola trademark/label.

The EMI Electrola GmbH was founded late in 1972, but the history of name started 47 years before.

The Gramophone Company founded the Electrola Gesellschaft m.b.H. (Electrola GmbH) in 1925 in Berlin. In 1931 Electrola GmbH started a Joint Venture with the Carl Lindström A.-G. - renamed to Carl Lindström GmbH in 1951. Also in 1931 the parent companies - The Gramophone Co. Ltd. and Columbia Graphophone Company Ltd. - merged into the Electric & Musical Industries Ltd. (EMI). In 1953 the two german EMI subsidiaries moved to Cologne and twenty years later the Carl Lindström GmbH merged with Electrola GmbH into the EMI Electrola GmbH.

2002 was a year of reorganisation within the German EMI companies. EMI Electrola GmbH & Co. KG merged with the Virgin Schallplatten GmbH & Co. KG and formed EMI Music Germany GmbH & Co. KG.
