Abbey Record Manufacturing Co., Inc.

Abbey Record Manufacturing Co., Inc.

Profile:
Defunct pressing plant located in New Jersey. Pressed for labels such as: Elektra, American Recording Society, Music Treasures Of The World, Prestige, United Artists Records, Audio Fidelity, etc. Founded 1948.

Vinyl pressed by this plant can usually be identified by a 2.75" pressing ring
and the letters "AB" or (A) etched in runouts, often accompanied by a date.

Abbey Record Manufacturing Co. was begun in 1948 by Norman B. Jacobowitz (chief engineer) as principal, with associates Jascha Zayde and [?] Brody. Horace Grenell purchased the Zayde and Brody interests in 1953, and became an equal partner with Jacobowitz in 1954. David A. Foxman became an equal partner with Jacobowitz and Grenell by 1956. Before 1954, Abbey manufactured primarily 10-inch 78s on contract for various companies. Early in 1954 Abbey began manufacturing 12-inch LPs.

The partnership of Jacobowitz, Foxman, and Grenell also operated Sound Plastics, Inc. that manufactured the vinyl "biscuits" for making records. In 1958 the partnership broke up, with Jacobowitz leaving Abbey and retaining Sound Plastics; Foxman and Grenell retained Abbey. Jacobowitz later purchased B & C Recording (John Bubbers and Walter Colquitt, Jr.).
