The first reference in Billboard to Palda Records in Philadelphia was as a pressing plant. The Millers placed a general advertisement in the March 1, 1947, issue of the magazine indicating their availability to press records. “Palda” was a short form of “Paul‐Albert‐David,” the Millers, who created the company. Albert Miller was the father of Paul and David; the sons usually ran the company, and later on it would be Dave Miller whose name would be synonymous with the company. Their offices and plant were at 3208 S. 84th Street in Philadelphia.

Palda started up a new series with 1001 and would later introduce a series of “race” records (by African‐American artists) beginning with 2001.

Palda was defunct in 1950 after a charge of selling obscene records in Denver.

The Ballen Record Company, Philadelphia, PA was founded by Ivin Ballen in 1946. Ivin built his own factory and studio from scratch. To keep his operation humming when his label’s acts were “cold”, Ivin began to take in work from other established labels, and within a few years the business had become a full-time pressing plant for third party labels.

In 1959 the company’s name was changed to Disc Makers.

Ivin Ballen passed away in 1978. Through the next two decades, the company (now called Disc Makers) progressed through various formats such as 45 rpm vinyl singles, 33 1/3 rpm vinyl LPs, 8-tracks, and audio cassettes. Today, Disc Makers stands alone as the undisputed leader in optical disc manufacturing for independent artists, filmmakers, and businesses.
