Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Winchester

Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Winchester

Profile:
Capitol Records Distribution Corporation announced in 1968 the purchasing of land in Winchester, Va for a new record and tape production plant. The Winchester plant began construction in 1968 and production in 1969. The plant initially had a workforce of 250 people. This plant complemented the other existing manufacturing facilities of Capitol in Scranton, Jacksonville and Los Angeles. In 1969 Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Scranton began phasing out their vinyl manufacturing in favor of the new Winchester plant.

Capitol Records announced in late 1987 that it would end tape duplicating production in the US, in favor of offshore manufacturing, including in Winchester by early 1988, putting more than 500 employees out of work when they closed the Winchester plant.

The identifiable runout marking is a “Winchester” rifle: ─◁ (examples here of more cryptic variations ).
Winchester pressings had a 1.390625" diameter pressing ring; Side 1 had another, smaller ring, next to the spindle hole, of 0.34375" diameter while Side 2's smaller ring was 0.53125".

Why would Madonna's debut album be pressed at Capitol's Winchester, VA plant? Madonna was on Sire Records, which was owned by Warner Brothers at the time. Just wondering...
