Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Scranton

Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Scranton

Profile:
Pressing plant for Capitol Records in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Opened 1946, began phasing out pressing vinyl in favor of transferring operations to the Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Winchester in 1969 and stopped vinyl pressing 1973.
A machine stamped triangle with the initials IAM indicates that the record was pressed at the Scranton, Pennsylvania plant. "IAM" stood for the International Association of Machinists' union whose members worked at the Scranton plant. It first took effect on Scranton pressings around February, 1963.

Prior to then (and after North American Music Industries' takeover in November 1973), an abstract Anvil-type symbol was used which has also been referred to as as a "lathe."

See images on this profile page for examples of the anvil and IAM symbols.

Scranton stopped making records altogether and closed down in July 1973. It reopened a few months later in November 1973, under North American Music Industries

I heard once that the IAM stamp in the runouts of many 1960's capitol pressings stood for
International Automated Media. Until now, that's what I always thought.
It is true that they were very good heavy, quiet pressings.

The "anvil" shape is actually a stylized Capitol building, usually stamped upside down.
