Disque Americ

Disque Americ

Profile:
Canadian CD/DVD pressing plant established by MPO in 1986 (opened 1987) and closed in February 2011. Like many Canadian companies, it has two legal names, one in French (Disque Americ Inc.) and one in English (Americ Disc Inc.). For releases crediting "DADR (Disque Americ Drummondville)", "Disque Americ", or "Disque Americ Canada", please use the French name, Disque Americ. For releases crediting "Americ Disc ADFL" or "ADFL" use Americ Disc, Florida, for releases crediting "Americ Disc Canada" or "AD/CA" use Americ Disc.

In 1997 the RIAA sued Americ Disc for knowingly, or recklessly disregarding the fact that many orders it accepted for pressing were counterfeit discs. As such, some CDs manufactured by this company prior to this have been found to be counterfeit.

The company is now part of the AmericDirect group which owns other US pressing plants in Miami (Florida) and Modesto (California).

Matrix numbers:
There are several matrix number formats, none of which have been proven to be sequential, so please do not enter these codes as catalog numbers. Do, however, try to enter all the text from the matrix area, including the exact way that the company is mentioned, e.g. "made by/fabriqué par DISQUE AMERIC [logo] CANADA".

One of the common formats has the format X<Y>Z, where:
X = usually a 5-character alphanumeric code with unknown meaning, often starts with a number.
Y = apparently a client ID, i.e. what record company the disc was pressed for. Usually 3 digits.
Z = catalog number or other client-supplied ID.

Discussion:
no obvious sequence, so don't enter codes
ongoing discussion, mainly about company name variations
more discussion, nothing new

Partial history:
Created by MPO as an "affiliate" company, at the behest of the Quebec government.

July 1993 – Became jointly owned by MPO and GTC Transcontinental Group Ltd.
July 1994 – Opened Miami FL manufacturing facility.
Nov 1995 – Acquired Triptych CD, a manufacturer in Stockton CA.
Oct 1996 – Merged Stockton operations into a new Salida CA plant.
Jan 1997 – Acquired AstralTech Americas (=Astral Tech (2)), a manufacturer in Boca Raton FL.
Sep 1997 – Began DVD production at Salida CA plant.
By 2001, had manufacturing facilities in CA, FL, TN, and Canada; and service & distribution centers in MN, TN, and Montreal.

In 2003, Americ Disc joined with Media Evolved in Charlotte, NC to form Americ Evolved Manufacturing LLC. Americ Disc's manufacturing operation in Miami, FL was consolidated into the newly joint-run Charlotte, NC plant.

In 2006, Americ Disc acquired CD/DVD manufacturer Denon Digital LLC of Madison, GA. This plant was closed in 2009.
