Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Carrollton, GA

Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Carrollton, GA

Profile:
Defunct US-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. Vinyl 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.

VINYL PRESSING INDICATORS INCLUDE:
G in runouts: an etched "G" was present on all lacquers processed at Carrollton. 1980s pressings generally had a "G" followed by "1" or a higher number in the deadwax.
C in runouts: A&M releases pressed at Carrollton had a "C" code in runouts (i.e. A+M-xxxxx-C1).
W on labels: A&M releases pressed at Carrollton often can also be identified by the letter "W" printed on the disc label.
57 on labels: 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.
70 on labels: LPs on K-Tel pressed at Carrollton were identified by a "70" code on the label.

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.
