New Vinyl Pressing Plant is open for business in Cleveland, Ohio
« on: November 15, 2009, 08:00:47 am »

I went to the open house of Gotta Groove records yesterday. Here is their website http://gottagrooverecords.com/our-plant/.

The place is very nicely setup and I got to see some real vinyl being made. The equipment has all been reworked and rebuilt and looks and works very well.

It was GREAT to see all the people that attended the open house and I got a chance to spend some time with my friend Michael Bishop and his wife.

Vince Slusarz has done a fantastic job getting together lots of very knowledgeable people and some good serviceable equipment to start his endeavor and I wish him nothing but success.

The last record making plant in Cleveland was Boddie Records and they folded years ago when vinyl record making was in decline.

What Vince has done has caught a lot of people's imagination and attention. To start up a new vinyl pressing plant in the middle of a recession took a lot of courage and determination

I already have a couple of clients that are thinking about getting some of their releases done on vinyl.

The plant is in a former industrial part of the city that is going though a rebirth and in the same area there is a new brewery and a glass arts shop.

It was an exciting evening and the food and drinks were also GREAT!

Thanks for the post.

I've had the pleasure of working with Vince and Matt already.

I'm looking for first hand experiences on this using plant for releases....feel free to email if you'd rather.

my clients have got a lot of interest in vinyl. i had a project come out on LP this year - first one since late 90s - my next two jobs are going vinyl. bizzare. guess i should have kept the tuntable.

thanks for any input...

Thomas.... Musicol Recording in Columbus has never stopped pressing vinyl records which makes Gotta Groove the second plant in Ohio and the new kid on the block all at the same time.

Stand by for a new plant opening in the USA in 2011. This plant is installing state-of-the-art Europafilm plating gear and Alpha-Toolex automatic presses finally bringing the US in line with Europe. The plant is currently being installed by highly skilled engineers experienced in record pressing from back in the day. There should be no need to send work to Europe anymore.

Also talking of setting up shop in the USA is a European concern. Looks like vinyl is the way of the future.

Thanks for the heads up on Musicol.  I never heard of them. Thanks also for the information about the new plant opening up.

Vinyl rules!!!
