WMME Alsdorf

WMME Alsdorf

Profile:
Vinyl, cassette and CD manufacturing plant, operating under this name between 1991 and 2003, as a division of Warner Music Manufacturing Europe.
It was located in Alsdorf, Germany.

Vinyl pressings can be identified by 'WMME Alsdorf' stamped into the runout area.

CDs can be identified as follows:
1. 'WME' or 'WMME' stamped into the hub (1991 - 1997 but can still appear on later repressings). Examples: 756792612-2 WME; 903174884-2/1 WME; 450990359-2.2 WME.
2. A mastering date after the 9+1(.# or /#) matrix string (September 1996 - late 2002). Examples: 063016396-2 WMME 09/96 (Twist In My Sobriety (The Remixes)); 3984282512-2 07/99; 755974014-2.4 06/00; 936242476-2 08/02 (Summer Breezin').
3. A letter and two numbers after the 9+1(.# or /#) matrix string and mastering date (late 2002 - September 2003). Examples: 755962813-2.2 10/02 V01 (Under Construction); 936248381-2 09/03 V01 (In Time (The Best Of R.E.M. 1988-2003)).
4. A letter and two numbers after the 13 matrix string (late 2002 - September 2003). Example: 5050466532626 V01 (Waar Gaat Dit Heen?).

Note 1:
For post September 2003 releases it cannot be defined who glass mastered and / or pressed the disc (WMME Alsdorf or Cinram). See The Triple Album Collection, a 2012 reissue where three different string formats were used.
Neither plant should therefore be added for post September 2003 releases and where the exact date is not known.

Note 2:
For CDs with 10/03 or 11/03 month in the matrix refer to the artwork: credit WMME where 'Made in Germany by Warner Music Manufacturing Europe' is printed; credit Cinram GmbH when 'Made in the EU' or 'Manufactured in the EU' appears. If in doubt, please open a thread in the forums. Some dubious releases:
Greatest Hits (10/03 matrix but 'Manufactured in the EU').
Closer (11/03 matrix but 'Made in Germany by WMME' on back cover and 'Manufactured in the EU' on disc).
Train Of Thought.

Note 3:
If 3 letters are present after the 9+1(.# or /#) V01 matrix string, e.g. 256468068-3 V01 DTD, please credit Cinram GmbH instead.

Usual SID Mastering codes: IFPI L011, IFPI L012, IFPI L013, IFPI L016, IFPI L017.
Usual SID Mould codes: IFPI 05** / IFPI 06**
These codes are indicative only as they have also been used by predecessors and succors.

Note 4:
The Warner 'big w' logo in the matrix of a CD is by itself not indicative for the CD having been pressed by WMME. It's an indicator that the CD is a pressing of a Warner related artist.

Previous name and facility history: Record Service Alsdorf.
Sold in July 2003 to Cinram and became Cinram GmbH in October 2003.

Note on vinyl:
WMME Alsdorf manufactured both small and large centre hole editions of 7"s and used the same label layout for both editions. This procedure partially affected the layout of the large centre hole editions and the record appears to be 'dinked'. Actually the record was manufactured and sold in this form. Alsdorf 7" editions with large centre hole were exclusively distributed within Continental Europe and should be submitted seperately.
The last vinyl record was pressed on 04 September 1998.
