Orlake Records

Orlake Records

Profile:
Record manufacturing firm founded by Orlake, a subsidiary of plastics company Movilex Ltd. when they opened their first pressing plant in Dagenham, Essex in 1964.
Commonly identifiable by "Orlake" etched in the run-out area of records, "OR" or less frequently as simply "O"; the + sign was also often used as joiner within the matrix.

In 1999 the plant was bought by First Sound and Vision Group (FSV) who went into administration on 6th November 2000.
The concern was bought by Orlake who opened a second plant in Hayes.
In 2001 Portal Space bought the Orlake Records concern and changed its name to Orlake Vinyl Ltd. but continued to trade under the name Orlake Records.
In 2007 due to decreasing profits, competition from the Czech Republic and the decline in the vinyl market the decision was made by Portal Space to wind down Orlake Records and concentrate on the Portal Space aspect of the business.
Orlake Records closed in the summer of 2007.
The most famous record pressed here was the Madonna Erotica picture disc, withdrawn by the record company, copies of which are known to have sold for up to £4500.00.

Employees included Uncle Dugs.
