«Our Deepgrooves pressing plant is situated in an old prison which looks like a castle with a huge square in front of us. We do have a very transparent place so people can always visit us and are welcome to see a part of the process» - Chris Roorda, CEO of Deepgrooves Vinyl Pressing Plant.
«People often say that "vinyl is back", I always explain that it never went away. There was a brief period around 2007-2009 where it certainly seemed to have disappeared, but companies such as GZ Media, MPO and Music Industries continued on and helped the format to continue on. We ought to be very thankful to these people for not giving up!» - Rad Klemczak, CEO of WMFono.

In 13 years I can say that vinyl record customers are almost all crazy. The normal ones are really a small part.
