History:
The roots of this plant reach way back to 1916, with the manufacturing of phonographs and records by the Starr Piano Company and labels run by the Gennett family.
The plant then saw several owner changes but was acquired by Brunswick for Decca around 1947. Decca operated the plant (incl. a 2-year closure between 1948 and 1950) until December 1957.
In May 1958 the plant was bought by Mercury and operated by National Record Pressing, Inc. until September 1961.
Between October 1961 and 1966, the plant operated under the name of Richmond Record Pressing, Inc.
From 1966 until 1970 the plant operated as Mercury Record Manufacturing Company.
After the full takeover of Mercury by Philips in June 1972, the plant was subsequently renamed to Philips Recording Co. Inc., and manufactured under this name until November 1972.
From December 1972 until 1990 the plant operated under the name PRC Recording Company (the name was legally registered as a d.b.a. - doing business as - registered to Richmond Recording Corporation. Filed as a for-profit foreign corporation in December 1972 in Indiana via Delaware under the name of the parent company).
In 1990, all PRC assets and the plant were sold to Cinram.
