Portal Space

Portal Space

Profile:
UK pressing plant facility in Hayes, Middlesex operating between 2001 and 2009. Full name: Portalspace Records Limited.

Incorporated on 1 September 2000 as Portalspace Limited, Portalspace acquired the former EMI Records vinyl pressing facility in Hayes. On 6 December 2001 the company changed name to Portalspace Records Ltd. The plant’s first general manager was Roy Edward Matthews, who ran EMI’s record factory during the 1960s and 70s (and who also founded Musitech) and was brought out of retirement by Portalspace’s owners to run the new operation in 2001. He served until 2004.

In 2008, the plants production output peaked at approximately 20,000 records a week.

In 2004, The Vinyl factory became the major shareholder in the company, and on 9 March 2009, the company changed its name to The Vinyl Factory Manufacturing.

Records pressed at Portal Space are identifiable by a machine-stamped "PS" (or occasionally "XX PS XX") at the end of the runout matrix string, e.g. "NXXDJ 11 A-1-1- PS". These unique machine-stamps were an identical format and typeface to those used by EMI Records at the plant previously.

Note: Not all records pressed by Portal Space have the "PS" in the runouts.
Example: Lasgo - Alone
