Canada Boy Vinyl has closed their manufacturing plant in Calgary after only sixteen months of operations.

This plant had just opened in September 2015 and had expected to take advantage of a resurgence in vinyl’s popularity. But there weren’t enough orders to make the plant sustainable so Dean Reid, the founder and chief operating officer of Canada Boy Vinyl, decided to cease its operations.

Burlington, Ontario’s new Precision Record Pressing plant is now the only vinyl pressing facility in Canada.

Hopefully sales will grow to make a domestic industry in Canada viable.
