About United Record Pressing
Whether under its original name Southern Plastics, or the moniker United Record Pressing, LLC, this Nashville-based company has pressed nothing but vinyl since 1949. Early clients included Vee Jay Records and Motown. Prior to signing to Capitol, Vee Jay released the first Beatles 7" in America.
In 1962, Southern Plastics relocated to 453 Chestnut Street, which is the same location that pressed those Beatles 7"s. Southern Plastics would eventually change its name to United Record Pressing in 1971.
Album covers such as Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited, Loretta Lynn's Van Lear Rose, and Jay-Z's The Black Album line the walls of United as a nod to the breadth of artists and genres
pressed here for decades.
