Detroit has long been known as the center of America’s automobile industry. An industry still trying to get back on track after years of decline that also affected the city in major ways. But while the jury is still out whether better days are ahead for the city’s auto industry, Detroit is experiencing a “revival” of a different kind. One brought about by another industry the city has also been in love with: music.
In particular, it’s the vinyl industry that is spearheading this particular Detroit revival. With the opening last February of a new vinyl pressing facility, Detroit is making history as one of the elite few cities in the world with not one, but two vinyl pressing facilities in operation within its boundaries.
