Record Industry has maintained the same high Japanese quality standards since the change of ownership. Record Industry serves a wide variety of customers, ranging from the majors and independent labels and artists to small boutique producers that sell very high quality records at premium prices.
The number of records pressed in Haarlem has gone up impressively, from 2 million records per year in 1998 to almost 11 million in 2021. A few years ago we doubled our capacity by adding an extra shift to the production. We are currently pressing 16 hours a day, 5 days a week and we are investing in new technology and hiring and training new staff.
Record Industry strongly believes in a future for vinyl, not only in the high quality audiophile market but also in the mainstream music market.
