KINGSTON, JAMAICA: Tuff Gong International, the entertainment company founded by global music icon Bob Marley, will relaunch its vinyl manufacturing services this February in partnership with Sunpress Vinyl.

Considered by music purists to provide the premium listening experience, sales of vinyl records are on the rise, hitting a 28-year record high last year. Tuff Gong’s vinyl pressing factory has always been the most popular in the Caribbean, with its high-grade product attracting clients from as far away as Europe and Asia.

Based in Opa Locka, Florida, SunPress Vinyl is housed in the former Final Vinyl factory, founded in the 1970s by reggae pioneer Joe Gibbs. As the U.S. base of Gibbs’ operations, and later, Studio One’s Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd‘s main pressing facility, the plant issued classic works by Toots and the Maytals, the Skatalites, Dennis Brown, and Sugar Minott.

Tuff Gong’s vinyl factory at 220 Marcus Garvey Drive in Kingston, Jamaica, is slated to undergo renovations over the next several months. In the interim, pressing orders can be placed online with fulfillment handled via Sunpress’ South Florida location.

General Manager of Tuff Gong International Marie Bruce stated, “Bob Marley’s vision was that of a one stop record production, manufacturing and distribution facility. The interest in owning music in vinyl format has experienced eight consecutive years of growth, and Tuff Gong is happy to rejoin this movement”.
