Czech Republic-Based Nashville Record Pressing Plans Nashville, Tennessee, U.S. Headquarters

Czech Republic-based Nashville Record Pressing will establish operations in Nashville, Tennessee. The $13.3 million project is expected to create 255 jobs over the next five years.

The facility, located at 520 Brick Church Park Drive, will include the company’s headquarters, manufacturing, distribution and back-office functions.

“We’re launching Nashville Record Pressing as a direct answer to customer requests to make more vinyl and locate that new production in Nashville. We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from Tennessee and the warm welcome we’ve received from Music City. We’re committed to becoming a source of pride for the community. We’re here to be Nashville’s favorite vinyl pressing plant,” said Drake Coker, CEO, Nashville Record Pressing.

Nashville Record Pressing is a wholly owned subsidiary of Czech Republic-based GZ Media. In addition to its U.S. headquarters, the Nashville facility will house the company’s manufacturing and distribution operations, which will be equipped with brand new, best-in-class equipment and infrastructure, positioning Nashville Record Pressing to be highly competitive and resilient, while also supporting the Nashville music community.

“Our strong business climate, skilled workforce and quality of life ensure global companies can excel in Tennessee. I thank Nashville Record Pressing for investing in Davidson County and creating more opportunities for Tennesseans,” said Governor Bill Lee.

GZ Media employs nearly 2,000 people in the Czech Republic and 500 in North America and is the largest global manufacturer of vinyl records.

“Our state’s central location and sound infrastructure system provide Tennessee businesses with unparalleled access to their markets around the world. We believe Davidson County will prove to be the ideal match for Nashville Record Pressing’s headquarters, manufacturing and distribution operations and look forward to seeing this company’s global success,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
