German vinyl (from 1976 until around 1995) and CD manufacturer (from 1985 until 1999) as well as distributor.

Originally founded 1971 by Alfred Petith as Taunus Ton Technik, a pressing machine manufacturer and pressing facility. The pressing facility was then bought by Branko Zivanovic (owner of Bellaphon) and expanded to a full pressing plant. The vinyl pressings can be identified by IP or I.P. in the runouts ("I" occasionally looks somewhat like a "J"). Also pressed for Intercord, Enja Records a.o.

The company changed its legal form and headquarters several times:
Interpress-Tonträger GmbH, Frankfurt: from March 1976 to May 1977 (then merged into Bellaphon Records GmbH & Co. KG).
Interpress Tonträger GmbH & Co. KG, Bad Homburg: from May 1976 to August 17, 1988 (of which Interpress-Tonträger GmbH / Bellaphon Records GmbH & Co. KG were limited partners).
Interpress Tonträger GmbH, Bad Homburg: from August 18, 1988 to May 03, 1999.
Interpress Tonträger GmbH & Co. KG, Bad Homburg: from May 04, 1999 to December 2000 - as distributor only.
Interpress Tonträger GmbH & Co. KG, Frankfurt: from December 2000 to 2002 - as distributor only.
Merged into Bellver Music Beteiligungs GmbH in 2002.

Glassmasters can be done at other plants, for example: If you find CDMxx in the matrix, please add "Glass Mastered At" CDM (10) (Malmö, Sweden) (for more info see label's profile), and add Interpress in the LCCN-section as Pressed by. (Example: Pete Escovedo - Mister E)
