Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Hollywood

Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Hollywood

Profile:
Closed 1964
Columbia constructs a new Hollywood Plant to go into operation in March 1948 and closes their plant on Romaine Street which opened in 1935..
The plant will have a monthly pressing capacity of 1,500,000 discs featuring 68 presses and fully automatic operation. Plant personnel will increase to 200 people when in full operation. The Hollywood Plant closed with the opening of Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Santa Maria in 1963.

This plant was known to use both a stamped "H" and etched "H". This is not to be confused with RCA Records Pressing Plant, Hollywood "H" which differs slightly from Columbia. If in doubt consult the forum.

There were actually two plants operated by Columbia in Hollywood.
6626 Romaine Street (zip 90038) in operation 1935 to 1948 &
8723 Alden Drive (zip 90048) in operation from 1948 to 1964

Known to have pressed for Mercury (See The Platters - Encore Of Golden Hits)
