  • Last Vinyl Record Plant in Canada to Close

    The economics of making Vinyl Records remain challenging in 2017.....

  • #2
    Precision Record Pressing in Burlington, ON opened last year. It's a joint venture with GZ Vinyl and Isotope Music.

    I have one album pressed by CBV (Lauren Mann - Dearestly). They weren't able to capture the national market and basically put out small run Indie labels(bands). I'm not surprised to hear of their demise. A real shame after all of the hard work he did and the passion he had.

          interesting, vinyl plants could supplement their revenues by offering tours of the facilities.
