Is there a reliable list anywhere of currently-producing LP plants around the world. Off-hand I know
RTI in California, the one down in Tennessee, at least one in Germany, at least one in the UK and I
think one or more in Japan. Details, exact locations, etc would be good. If there isn't a reliable
list anywhere, perhaps we can brainstorm one together here and maybe the ARSC website could host it?
Web-board rumors would not be welcome. First-hand knowledge of the plant's location and the fact
that it is currently operating would be best.
I am sure about RTI in California. I mentioned the plants in Germany and England because they were
shown in operation in Mike Fremer's recent DVD "It's a Vinyl World After All." I believe the
sequences in the DVD were shot in 2008. The plant in Tennessee was mentioned in a recent newspaper
article (2nd half 2008) that was linked on this list, I think.
