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, JP or J.P. in the runouts (the "J" is actually an "I").
