"We'll be able to press a record about every 40 seconds," says Clampdown Record Pressing founder Billy Bones.
The Vinyl Factory reports that Clampdown Record Pressing will use machines from Canadian company Viryl Technologies, which uses a more efficient method to manufacture records quickly.
Clampdown comes from East Vancouver music scene mainstay Billy Bones, who received a grant from a British Columbia government program to start the plant, which will take over a warehouse in Burnaby. It will be the only pressing plant in British Columbia or neighbourhing Washington State and the first since the '90s.
"Once the machines are up and running, we’ll be able to press a record about every 40 seconds," he told the New Westminster Record. "At Clampdown we'll be able to handle everything from your classic black record to fancy, fun records, like coloured vinyl, splatter vinyl and picture discs, in the 7-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch formats."
