Sony DADC is moving DVD replication work out of its Pitman, N.J., facility to its main facility in Terre Haute, Ind., resulting in 160 job cuts, the Gloucester County Times reported Feb. 25.
Calls to Sony Corp. were not returned.
The Pitman plant, which had 570 employees before the job cuts, will continue to duplicate CDs and video games for the PlayStation 3, the paper reported.
“In light of the continued challenges posed by economic conditions and the current competitive landscape, Sony DADC is taking additional steps to manage costs and achieve greater operating efficiencies in its supply chain network,” the company said in a statement to the paper. “As a result of this change, we are reducing staff at our Pitman facility.”
