Note: do not confuse with the unrelated Precision Record Pressing, Inc., active the 1960s and '70s. Please do not use this company for releases produced before 2017.

Record pressing plant (20,000 square foot) located in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, that officially opened May 11, 2017. It is a joint venture (50-50 ownership) between Canadian company Isotope Music Inc, founded by Gerald McGhee, and Czech company GZ Media.

In March 2016, Canadian vinyl broker Samo Media merged with Precision Record Pressing, becoming their sales and service branch located in Toronto.

Most of cutting and all plating and test pressings production is done at GZ Media and runout etchings will look very similar to records pressed at GZ Media.
Records with Precision Record Pressing ordering identifiers, i.e. a number that begins with 10- followed by five digits (example 10-83451), are generally pressed by Precision Record Pressing, but some more complicated colored vinyl records, 7″ and 10″ were pressed by GZ Media. Records produced from externally supplied lacquers and metal parts are pressed without these PRP IDs. The pressing ring is 33mm.
Releases pressed at Precision Record Pressing will nearly always have a "Made in Canada" sticker attached to the shrink wrap or seal, or it is printed on the shrink wrap directly.
