Sony moving 150 jobs to Terre Haute plant

January 26, 2011

A plant closing in New Jersey will result in 150 jobs moving to Sony DADC's factory in Terre Haute.

The Terre Haute Tribune-Star reported Wednesday the Indiana plant will become Sony DADC's only U.S. compact disc manufacturing plant east of the Mississippi River.

Sony DADC earlier this month announced it would close its Pitman, N.J., plant March 31, cutting about 300 workers. That plant had produced, at its peak, about 16.5 million CDs per month.

The Terre Haute plant now employs about 1,150 workers. It also manufactures Blu-ray, DVDs and video games.
