Historic United Record Pressing plant set to close after over 50 years



North America’s largest vinyl manufacturer is relocating.

United Record Pressing, one of the most prolific vinyl manufacturers in the world producing 30,000 units a day, is set to close the historic Nashville factory where it has been operating since 1962.

As reported by Nashville Scene, the plant shared the news via a video walk-through of the iconic site on Instagram. Wrapping up operations at the Chestnut Street site, United Record Pressing plans to move its entire operation to a new 142,000-square-foot space on Allied Drive in South Nashville, which was purchased by the company two years ago.

“It’s a bitter-sweet thing to leave this place,” the Instagram post reads, “but we’re excited for the expansion where we can continue to make vinyl records like we have been since 1949.” [via Nashville Scene]
