The news follows Sony Music's installation of a cutting lathe in its studio earlier this year.
But now, many music fans, both young and old, are once again "spinning the black circle". Sony stopped its in-house vinyl production in 1989, relying on outsourcing to focus on CD production instead. After vinyl died out 30 years ago, most of the industry's printing machines were dismantled - and now, the last presses left standing can't meet the demand.
Globally, revenue from vinyl increased in 2016 by 23.5% to over half a billion dollars (US $563.6m) as unit sales increased from 31.7m to 37.5m.

The company is searching for retired record engineers to advise its new record-making venture, according to Nikkei. The rep adds some of Sony's former engineers will take on advisory roles so Sony's less-experienced engineers can get a feel for how vinyl production is done.
But vinyl has since been at the centre of one of the biggest global comebacks in recent memory, spearheaded by events such as Record Store Day and the nostalgic value the format has maintained.
The situation is similar in other developed countries, including Britain, where revenues from vinyl sales briefly surpassed those of digital music downloads last December.
