Nothing But Vinyl Since 1949
United Record Pressing has seen a lot over the last 70 years. From pressing the first Beatles 7” to outgrowing three facilities, United hasn’t lost what has kept it alive and thriving: our passion for also keeping music alive on vinyl records.
Founded in 1949 in Nashville, TN, the company was known for pressing one million records per month and for its astounding and unique history. United also boasts a storied collection of pressing a variety of influential musical titles, including many of the Motown hits and album covers such as Bob Dylan's “Highway 61 Revisited,” Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue," and Jay-Z's " The Black Album."
Yes, it’s an exciting time for vinyl due to its recent revival, but we’re proud to say we haven’t gone anywhere. It is our steadfast belief in the vinyl format that has now made us the largest manufacturer of vinyl records in North America, and we are grateful to be a trusted partner to both major and independent labels and artists around the world.
