Polyphon Schallplatten Ges. mbH

Polyphon Schallplatten Ges. mbH

Profile:
Austrian Record company manufacturing and distributing Amadeo, Philips and Deutsche Grammophon/Polydor records for the Austrian market.
Operating under this name until 30 June 1970, when all distribution was transferred to Amadeo Österreichische Schallplatten Aktiengesellschaft, Polydor Gesellschaft m.b.H. and Phonogram Ges.m.b.H., Wien.
All administrative, manufacturing and logistic activities were then transferred to Phonodisc GesmbH.

Originally founded as Austrian subsidiary by German Polyphon Musik in 1919. The pressing plant, originally built 1941, was destroyed during World War II, rebuilt and went back into production in 1947.
