-On some Warner Bros. and Capitol releases "LW" is in the matrix code but this an incorrect entry for this profile. See Capitol Records Pressing Plant, Los Angeles

President Jack Berman (Circa 1959)

From lacquer discs this company made the metal parts that were pressed by Presswell, Monarch Record Mfg. Co., Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Pitman, Specialty Records Corporation (confirmed) and others. Longwear's work is identifiable by Matrix etchings of "LW" or "LWP". The "LW" and "LWP" have been observed only etched & the "L" either a capital "L" or a cursive "L". Another key identifier is that the etch is placed well away from other matrix runouts and is rotated 90 degrees to the right of other etchings.

It is known that at least up until 1984 Longwear was wholly owned by Mastercraft Record Plating, Inc.
