A new record pressing plant called Clampdown Record Pressing is opening in Vancouver, Canada this Spring, reports the New Westminster Record.

Run by entrepreneur and musician Billy Bones, the plant will feature new Viryl Technology machines. “Once the machines are up and running, we’ll be able to press a record about every 40 seconds,” shares Bones.

In 2018, Viryl Technologies launched an “online global pressing plant.”
