Dave and Dominique Harvey are building the first vinyl pressing plant in Scotland. Seabass Vinyl is an ambitious project and they took the time to provide a comprehensive update on how it is progressing as they near the start of production.
We first spoke back in July and there was no work even started at that point on site. How does the site look now?
Yes, we had tidied up the plot and the ground works were just starting then. Now I think we are slightly ahead of schedule with the building work at the moment. The walls and roof are up, the concrete slab is in, electricity and water is connected. We should be wind and watertight in a couple of weeks’ time, and internal building work has commenced as well. We start delivering the actual plant to site on 7 November. All the pre-manufacturing has been completed and is waiting to be delivered to the site.
We will commission all the kit between 7 and 27 November. On 27 November Pheenix Alpha (manufacturer of the presses) will come in and do fine tuning and final test pressings of the vinyl. On the week of 27 November we are expecting to press test pressings to send out to customers, and go into production the following week.
