Kindercore Records label will open a vinyl-record manufacturing facility in a warehouse on Fritz Mar Lane in north Athens. Kindercore Vinyl, which will begin operating as early as July, will be the only such facility in the state of Georgia, and one of about 20 currently operating in the entire country.
Kindercore purchased three of the Viryl Technologies machines at a cost of over $200,000 each, and will be among the first to use the cutting-edge presses. Their capacity is up to five times that of manual presses, meaning the Athens factory will be able to produce 2,000–3,000 records each day.

Kindercore plans to market itself to small regional labels and unsigned bands as a friendly, convenient pressing option, and encourage local customers to avoid costly shipping fees by picking up their orders directly from the factory.
