Independent Record Pressing (IRP)
INDEPENDENT RECORD PRESSING was founded in 2015 in Bordentown, NJ by Dave Hansen (formerly General Manager of Epitaph) and Darius Van Arman, Ben Swanson, & Chris Swanson from the Secretly Group with the vision to have a plant that supports and presses for independent labels. The plant started with 6 vintage Hamilton Presses made in the late 70s/early 80s. As new presses started to be manufactured, we partnered with Viryltech in Canada and purchased 6 new Warmtone Automatic Presses. Today we have a total of nine -12" presses in the weights of 140-180g pressing some of the most important and highly regarded albums in the world. Independent has pressed Bon Iver, Radiohead, Tom Waits, Jim James, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mac DeMarco, Greg Allman, Angel Olsen, Sufjan Stevens and many more.
