Damont

Profile:
Vinyl pressing plant in Hayes, Middlesex operating from 1972 until 2006. Founded by David L. Miller and Monty Presky, the plant was owned by manufacturer Damont Records Ltd. until 1986 and by Damont Audio Ltd. thereafter.

Please use only when "Damont" is explicitly credited, often "DAMONT" is etched in the runout. May also be identified by a single "D" etched at twelve o'clock in the runout.

The plant opened in 1972 after Miller and Presky travelled to America to order pressing machinery. They had originally intended to open the plant in the Nottingham area, but instead the plant was opened in Hayes on the same street as the original EMI Records plant.

By February 1977, record pressing accounted for 50% of the company turnover. The plant had ten 12" presses and four 7" ones and an approximate two month turnaround time, and had pressed for every major company except Decca. In September 1977, WEA Records Ltd. acquired a majority holding in Damont Records Ltd. by purchasing the shares of Miller and Presky, and by February 1979 Damont had become part of the WEA group.

In 2005, the Damont Audio Ltd. entered liquidation and the company ceased trading in May 2006 when a compulsory winding up order was issued. Following this, the company was officially dissolved in 2009 after three years of dormancy.

Damont Audio also offered CD and DVD manufacturing services but it is not presently understood if their digital work was outsourced to another company.
