Hi everyone. I wanted to introduce myself and my company, Furnace Record Pressing to the LT family. Thanks to Steve and Co for including us.
I founded Furnace 20 years ago. For the last 8 years we have worked with our exclusive partners in Europe (Pallas and Record Industry) to press high quality records for our customers here in North America. While our existing vinyl business is still thriving, we knew we needed to expand our offerings and increase our capacity to keep up with the demand
So about a year ago we purchased 10 TA presses in Mexico. In addition to our automatic presses, we are also building four custom semi-auto machines. While the equipment is being refurbished by our pals in Europe, we are trading in our 12,000 sq/ft disjointed office/warehouse space for a 50,000 sq/ft state of the art facility with 6 glorious loading docks (those of you in the biz know how excited I am about loading docks!).
The first phase is slated for completion Q1 of 2017 and will include pressing, assembly, finishing and warehousing. Phase 2 will add galvanics, additional presses and, eventually, a mastering lab for in house cutting. We are installing equipment, utilities and running drops for 24 presses so expanding will be plug and play.
As you can imagine, we are looking for experienced people to join our team. If you or anyone you know would fit the bill, please have them get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. In the coming weeks, we will be posting job openings on our website and our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/furnacemfg/
Thanks for listening. I look forward to meeting some of you in the near future.
