Company Overview

ULab video about SunPress Vinyl

SunPress Vinyl was founded in 2016 to participate in the booming vinyl record industry. SunPress Vinyl owns six record pressing machines that represent an annual capacity of over 2 million records. It is the only major record pressing facility in the Southeast U.S., and provides easy access to Caribbean and Latin American markets.

In January 2017, the company announced a major record pressing partnership with Bob Marley’s label, Tuff Gong International. In addition to pressing Bob Marley records, the company expects to service independents, major labels, and distributors nationwide.

Given current market demands, and the company’s machinery refurbishing schedule - SunPress is presently operating 2 presses and expects to bring the remaining 4 online over the next several months - SunPress should be running at full capacity before year-end. This would result in the company generating annualized revenues in the range of $10MM - $12MM, with pre-tax profits of approximately $2.2MM – $2.6MM.

SunPress Vinyl is housed in the former Final Vinyl factory, founded in the 1970s by reggae pioneer Joe Gibbs. As the U.S. base of Gibbs’ operations, and later, Studio One's Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd's main pressing facility, the plant issued classic works by Toots and the Maytals, the Skatalites, Dennis Brown, and Sugar Minott.

SunPress Vinyl's founders are musicians, producers, and engineers, with credits on recordings by a diverse group of artists such as Pet Shop Boys, Britney Spears, De La Soul, and Arto Lindsay. We are committed to delivering top quality vinyl records to independent and major artists and labels, locally and worldwide.

SunPress Vinyl is committed to extending the long vinyl legacy in Miami, and restoring a vibrant hub for the production of beautiful, analogue music.

Testimonials

"When I decided to put my music out on vinyl, I was thrilled to find a pressing plant right here in Miami. SunPress Vinyl delivered great records on time, and the whole experience was very cool. Looking forward to working with Dan and the team on my next release.
