Citing ongoing global shifts in consumer demand for packaged media, disc replication company Sony DADC is considering shuttering its manufacturing/distribution facility in Enfield.
A company spokesperson confirmed the move, saying the possible closure was in the “proposal stage” and that management was consulting with affected employees and how it could mitigate the impact of possible layoffs.
“Sony DADC will continue to remain a strong and reliable end-to-end services provider and partner for the home entertainment industry and beyond by utilizing the combination of its existing operations network in Austria, Czech Republic and Spain, plus partnerships with other providers,” Craig Carter, director PMO and transition management, Sony DADC, said in an email.
Sony DADC operates 17 manufacturing facilities worldwide, including two units in the United States: Terre Haute, Ind., and Bolingbrook, Ill.
The company in January at CES in Las Vegas, showcased continued business ventures into video games with a line of table-top micro arcade machines under license with Bandai Namco Entertainment Products.
