Polygram Industries Messageries

Polygram Industries Messageries

Profile:
Please don't use prior to 1978.
Polygram Industries Messageries was a French Polygram company, active under this name between September 1978 (officially from 1 January 1979) and 1986. Succeeding C.I.D.I.S..
'Industries' refers to cover and label printing, vinyl cutting and pressing as well as for music cassette manufacturing.
'Messageries' refers to warehousing, distribution and logistics.

Polygram Industries Messageries operated 2 plants: 1 in Louviers and 1 in Antony.

Printing
Appears on sleeves as "Imp. Polygram Industries Messageries" and / or as two "waves", non-ink stamped / embossed on the back cover.
Please add Printed By - Polygram Industries Messageries
During 1984, it was replaced by "Imp. Polygram", please add Printed By Imp. Polygram in these cases.

Vinyl cutting
'380' in the vinyl runouts denotes a lacquer cut (in Louviers), please add Lacquer Cut At - Polygram Industries Messageries.
For 'Gravure POLYGRAM I.M' on the sleeves, please add Lacquer Cut At - Polygram Industries Messageries.

Vinyl pressing
When 'POLYGRAM' or 'POLYGRAM I.M.' is found in the runouts, please add Pressed By - Polygram Industries Messageries.

The Louviers plant pressed injection molded 7"s, using an embossed printing system.
While Louviers pressed 12"s and LPs during all those years, Antony pressed LPs only up to ca.1984.
However, it has been impossible to find criteria allowing to allocate a specific plant.

LPs pressed by Polygram Industries Messageries have a pressing ring of 20mm in diameter:
- black bare vinyl center ring
- or looking like 2 rings around the spindle hole (different from German narrow central ring)
- or also with a second embossed outer ring (from c.1984)

'Made in France' (or 'Fabriqué en France') on labels is frequent up to 1983 but rare later (especially for releases with "// 1 380 POLYGRAM" and ""// 2 380 POLYGRAM" in runouts)

Often, but not always, there are 3 characters in the runouts, identifying the customer, for instance (non exhaustive list): ALA = Albatros, ATL = Atlantic, BAR = Barclay, CAR = Carrère, CBS = CBS, CHR = Chrysalis, COC = Cosmic Music, DEL = Delphine, ELE = Elektra, ERA = Erato, FON = Fontana, ISL = Island, MER = Mercury, PER = Pergola, PHI = Philips, POL = Polydor, RIE = Riviera, VER = Vertigo, VEV = Verve, VIR = Virgin, WAR = Warner Bros, etc...
Those 3 characters are sometimes replaced or complemented by numbers, for instance (non exhaustive list): 001 = Philips, 003 = Mercury, 012 = Island Records, 015 = Vertigo, 058 = ZTT/Island, 115 = A&M, 160 = Polydor, 180 = Verve, 222 = Barclay, etc...

Cassette Manufacturing
Both plants manufactured cassettes but it is not known how to detect and differentiate them.
However, Duplicated By Polygram Industries Messageries can be used where:
- 'Made in France' is on the cassette labels, AND
- 'POLYGRAM' is upside-down underneath the cassette window.

The Louviers plant was bought by Philips and Du Pont and renamed PDO, France in August 1986.
It obviously took a while to change the pressing equipment, so POLYGRAM can still be found on releases until 1987.
In these cases, please use Pressed By - Polygram Industries Messageries.
