Reliably informed

It’s not often we bring you stories about new factories opening in the region, but we elected to make an exception with this one… Press On Vinyl is a brand new vinyl pressing plant based in Middlesbrough, and is the only state of the art, purpose-built production facility north of Luton.

This is excellent news for the region’s musicians and labels, as lengthy waiting times for vinyl manufacturing has led to independent musicians and smaller labels waiting several months for releases they’ve had in the pipeline since lockdown began; with big labels taking up time and resources, Press On Vinyl have laid out their plans to only work with smaller grassroots artists and labels, in order to help level the playing field.

Proudly boasting of environmentally efficient pressing machinery, a careful eye for detail and a dedicated and highly skilled workforce, the folks behind Press On Vinyl are passionate about the visual beauty and importance of vinyl production.

At the heart of all this is a team of ardent music lovers with deep roots in the regional music scene, who promise to dedicate as much care and attention to every release, whether it’s for 100 or 10,000 records.
