  • Last Vinyl Record Plant in Canada to Close

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

    Canada Boy Vinyl opened in Calgary in September 2015 expecting to take advantage of a surge in record sales.

    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.
