The Turicaphon AG was founded in Zurich (CH) 1st of october 1930.
1936 founder Heinrich Landis moved the company to Riedikon. Water was cheaper at the new location – so the production costs – the shellac was heated for the pressing up to 170 degrees Celsius and had to be cooled down quickly. Turicaphon has pressed labels like Austroton, ELITE RECORD and ELITE-SPECIAL.
In the mid 50’s Turicaphon started to press on vinyl.
