Precision Record Pressing

Precision Record Pressing

Profile:
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.
Releases pressed at Precision Record Pressing will nearly always have a "Made in Canada" sticker attached to the shrink wrap or seal.

it seems like a lot of more recent pressings don't have the 10-##### codes, instead they'll simply have GZ codes (catalog number and part number) and a 'made in canada' sticker. this seems especially common for releases where GZ does the EU pressings and seemingly send parts to PRP for north american pressings. maybe this PRP profile should be updated to reflect that, but i'm not sure there's any way to 100% confirm it (but i don't think GZ would press discs then send just the discs over to canada for packaging).

Have several Precision pressings and while the pressing quality is not bad, like MPO, they always seem to manage one side off center which is annoying to say the least. If they can step up their QC, they'd be a good plant.

One of my favorite plants out there right now but a couple of records I’ve bought pressed by them lately have been off center (Taylor Swift “Lover” on its third side). Hopefully they can stop that because I love me some PRP!

This pressing plant, in my experience, is one of the better ones out there today. Some of their early pressings suffered from non-fill but they were very responsive to the situation and have made great improvement since. Their work is way better than their parent company (GZ). Most PRP pressings I’ve purchased in the past year or so have been nice quiet slabs of vinyl.
