Furnace MFG proudly announces its selection as the official Vinyl Record, CD and DVD manufacturing partner for Record Store Day 2011.

Entering its fourth year, Record Store Day celebrates the unique music culture found in over 1400 independently owned record stores in the USA and around the world.

Notable/platinum-selling artists rally for the cause by making in-store appearances and performances and by releasing exclusive/special products for independent retailers.

“We selected Furnace MFG as our official manufacturing partner because of their reputation for high quality manufacturing and fast turnaround times,” said Michael Kurtz, co-founder of Record Store Day.

“Store owners value high-quality product that is released on time because this promotes strong sales and minimizes costly returns. Furnace is a favorite amongst participating RSD labels because they always deliver on both fronts.”

The previous Record Store Day featured more than 200 retail-only, special releases. RSD 2011 promises to produce even greater participation. Coinciding with this year's RSD is an exhibit about the grunge band Nirvana at Seattle’s The Experience Music Project.

Furnace MFG and RSD make a natural partnership. Furnace specializes in high quality vinyl pressing and also offers CD and DVD manufacturing – all under one roof.

Furnace, working with a large and varied group of artists and labels, has the capability and capacity to assure all RSD participants that their products will be on retail shelves in time for RSD 2011: Saturday, April 16th.

Eric Astor, Furnace MFG’s CEO says, “We are excited to begin our relationship with Record Store Day. RSD is a wonderful event that draws attention to the 1000+ independent record stores still catering to the record buying culture that I valued growing up. To encourage increased participation in RSD, we intend to create special discounts for artists and labels wishing to press their music with us.”
