ENFIELD, UK (CelebrityAccess) — Japanese technology company Sony announced it is planning to close its Digital Audio Disc Corporation (DADC) distribution facility in Enfield, England.
In a statement released to the industry trade publication What Hi-Fi?, Sony said: “As consumer habits in the home entertainment market continue to evolve, Sony DADC in England announced its proposal to close its distribution site in Enfield, England.”
“This is at proposal stage at present and the company will consult fully with the affected employees and their appointed employee representatives on the proposal, including ways in which to support employees and mitigate the impact of the proposal,” the Sony statement added.
Sony DADC is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of CD, DVD, UMD and Blu-ray discs and the plant primarily services Sony Music Entertainment-owned record labels. The company’s DADC plants in Austria, the Czech Republic, and Spain will remain open, Sony told What Hi-Fi?
Sony’s Enfield location was severely damaged in a fire in 2011, with as much as 25% of Sony’s entire home entertainment disc stock in Britain destroyed in the blaze.
