Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Carrollton, GA

Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Carrollton, GA

Profile:
Opened in 1981 as a record, tape, and videodisc manufacturing and distribution facility. The plant's state-of-the-art equipment was said to significantly reduce product manufacturing costs. Plant Manager Joseph Kroll said he would add people “when” Terre Haute closed and would bring his workforce to 1300 by early-1983. Vinyl manufacturing ceased in 1991.

An etched "G" was present on all lacquers that went there. 1980s pressings generally had a "G" followed by "I" in the deadwax.

A&M releases pressed there had a "C" code in runouts (i.e. A+M-xxxxx-C1), and often can also be identified by the letter "W" printed on the disc label - see uploaded image.
(For a complete listing of A&M label plant codes, please see this Forum thread.

On some pressings for PolyGram sublabels during the latter half of the 1980s, a "57" code printed on the center labels indicate pressing at this plant.

Carrollton pressings of LP's on K-Tel were identified by a "70" code on the label.
