PRS, Louviers

PRS, Louviers

Profile:
PolyGram Record Service S.A., Louviers, France. Vinyl mastering, pressing and printing plant. Operating under this name from May 1979 until February 1987. And as CD pressing plant from end of 1991 until mid 1993.

A sister plant was operating in Antony: PRS, Antony, where LPs (identifiable by 1Y/2Y and/or LPL in the matrix) and cassettes were manufactured.

Lacquer cuts can be identified by the 380 in the matrix. As full servicer, this usually also indicates the pressing. The plant is also often credited as Polygram or Polygram I.M. in the matrix.
Injection molded 7"s, using an embossed printing system were also pressed in Louviers. The plant used a unique 3-digit numbering system in their vinyl operations, indicating the ordering label (sometimes in combination with a label abbreviation, e.g. CHR, PHI, VER): 001 = Philips, 002 = Fontana, 003 = Mercury, 011 = Chrysalis, 012 = Island, 015 =Vertigo, 100 = Polydor, 605 = Mercury, etc.

CDs can be identified by "00 L7" in the matrix and "Made in France by PRS" on the disc face.
Note: "Made in France by PRS" can still appear on later CDs/reissues. These should be listed here, too.

Former Phonogram vinyl pressing plant called C.I.D.I.S. Louviers.
Renamed PDO, France in February 1987. Renamed to PMDC, France in June 1993.
