Sony shuts down New Jersey Plant

January 21, in Business

Even though we just reported on a DiscGear Selector 100, it would appear that the days of discs, at least CD ones, are numbered.

Sony has just announced its plans to shut down its Pitman New Jersey plant on March 18th.

Sony once had three, but now two are down, and the one in Terre Haute IN to go. The Pitman plant laid off 160 workers last year, which means it was open for about 51 years when it made LP records.

Sony is blaming the economy for this, but I think it is just another sign that the CD, DVD, and even Blu-Ray is on its way out. It’s a digital age now, baby! I think we already reported that Sony would close its last U.S. Plant.
