This cutting-edge vinyl pressing plant has set out to be more than just a manufacturing facility; it aims to become “Nashville’s favorite vinyl pressing plant.” With a focus on producing vinyl records that capture the essence of music, Nashville Record Pressing has partnered with Lee Company to orchestrate the engineering marvel that underpins its operations. This partnership’s harmonious notes reverberate through the facility, creating a masterpiece in manufacturing and design.

A New Era in Vinyl Pressing

Nashville Record Pressing’s journey began with a mission – to revitalize the art of vinyl record manufacturing. As music enthusiasts embrace the analog experience, vinyl records have made a remarkable comeback. To meet the demand of vinyl aficionados, Nashville Record Pressing envisioned a state-of-the-art facility that not only churns out records but also encapsulates the spirit of music.

Located on Nashville’s vibrant north side, the facility was designed to house a remarkable collection of 12, 24, and eventually 36 record presses. This ambitious endeavor required a blend of engineering brilliance, intricate design, and innovative execution – a feat that would prove to be a showcase of Lee Company’s expertise.

Designing the Masterpiece

As the record presses spun to life, the behind-the-scenes narrative of this symphony was the meticulous work carried out by Lee Company. Initially engaged to handle plumbing, Lee Company’s role expanded to encompass mechanical work, plumbing, and process piping, setting the stage for a true partnership. Their challenge: to expedite the design, installation, and execution of a complex system that would power these record presses.

With only a tight timeframe to play within, Lee Company took center stage, setting the tone for the entire project. They not only delivered an aggressive project schedule but also embraced the complexity of the task at hand. With an intricate web of steam, compressed air, warm water, and hydraulic fluid, Lee Company had to engineer a system that could bring harmony to the production of vinyl records.

Setting the Tempo

To bring the first 12 record presses online in just four months required unwavering dedication and a commitment to precision. Lee Company set a relentless tempo, ensuring each note of the project was orchestrated with care. This journey was fueled by transparency, collaboration, and consistent communication.

From designing a unique racking system to support industrial piping and equipment to developing a meticulously designed plumbing infrastructure, Lee Company’s expertise shone brightly. Their ingenuity ensured that the record presses would be powered efficiently and effectively, setting the stage for a seamless production process.

The Perfect Melody

Behind the scenes, Lee Company’s best and brightest minds collaborated to craft a symphony of systems that worked harmoniously. Their designs were rooted in experience, talents, and original ideas, resulting in a manufacturing design that seamlessly aligned with Nashville Record Pressing’s vision.

One standout example was the introduction of a novel racking system, which not only supported the necessary equipment but also became the backbone of the entire pressing operation. With precision and creativity, Lee Company ensured that the systems and processes they put in place would be a perfect blend, much like the notes that make up a soul-stirring melody.

Hitting All the Right Notes

Quality control took center stage, with Lee Company ensuring that every element of the project met the highest standards. Adhering to safety-focused testing procedures, they left no stone unturned.
