Orlake Records

Orlake Records

Profil:
Orlake Records was a UK pressing plant established by plastics company Movilex Ltd. in 1964 and operated until 1999.

By the late 80s, Orlake had built a reputation for "pressing the records that nobody else wanted to press", according to Peter Hall who was Orlake's General Manager before he returned to EMI as General Manager - Manufacturing. These records included picture discs, shaped discs, shaped picture discs, and coloured vinyl discs all of which are highly sought after by collectors today. The most famous of these is perhaps the Madonna - Erotica picture disc. Withdrawn by the record company, copies of this record have sold for up to £4,500.00.

Orlake operated a state-of-the-art plant with 16 Toolex Alpha automatic and 24 Toolex Alpha semi-automatic presses at it's peak producing one million records per month. There was no in-house disc mastering or printing facility.

In 1999 the plant was sold to First Sound and Vision Group (FSV) which went into administration on 6th November 2000. In 2001 Portal Space bought the plant renaming it Orlake Vinyl Ltd. trading as Orlake Records. Due to a decline in demand for vinyl records, Portal Space closed the Orlake plant in the summer of 2007 and focused on their main plant which was renamed The Vinyl Factory.

Orlake pressings are identifiable with the hand inscriptions "Orlake", "OR" or less frequently "O" in the lead-out groove area. The + sign was also often used as joiner within the matrix numbers.
