Wilf Carter's records

Compo Company

The Compo Company was founded in Lachine, Quebec, late in 1918 by Herbert S. Berliner, then vice-president and general manager of the Berliner Gram-O-Phone Company. Compo operated the first independent Canadian disc-pressing plant. Only two Canadian record companies survived the 1929-1939 economic crash and depression – RCA Victor of Canada and Compo.

In 1950 Herbert Berliner sold Compo to Decca(US). Decca sold it to MCA Records in 1963. The Compo labels remained on the market until 1971. The Lachine pressing plant ceased production in the early 1970s.
