Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Carrollton, GA
Defunct American pressing/manufacturing facility in Carrollton, Georgia. The plant opened in 1981 as a record, tape, and videodisc (CED) manufacturing and distribution facility. At the time, the Carrollton 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 the Terre Haute plant closed and would bring his workforce to 1300 by early 1983. Record manufacturing began on September 28, 1981 and ceased in November 1991. As Columbia morphed into Sony Music, Carrollton produced compact discs from 1995 to 2001 and then focused on distribution until early 2013. The building is now home of Southwire, a cable and wiring systems management manufacturer.
- I am seeing this etched into may records Pressed at Carrollton, does anyone know what this signifies?
- This record plant according to hearing especially many reissue LP's vs the originals a lot of time was when vinyl peaked in the sound and manufacturing especially Columbia records... I'm not sure what went on there. But I have pressings that were done there that beat any original and any CD's that were released... So it must of had something advanced there not sure what exactly.
