TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Around 100 local jobs will be affected after Sony DADC announced this week a consolidation of all disc replication operations into one site, eliminating the need for some employees at the Terre Haute, Ind. site by mid-2022.

Sony DADC, the Digital Audio Disc portion of the Sony company, has a facility at 1800 Fruitridge Ave. in Terre Haute that will be affected by the consolidation. In a statement from Sony representative Lisa Gephardt, the company confirmed all disc manufacturing operations will be moved to Salzburg, Austria.

Here is the official statement sent by Gephardt, senior director of corporate communications for Sony Corp. of America:

Due to a continuous move to digital in the home entertainment market, Sony DADC announced to consolidate all of its disc replication operations into one site and as such the disc manufacturing services based in the US Terre Haute site will cease by Mid 2022. The roles servicing this operation are set for redundancy. Every effort will be made to support the employees during this time.

Distribution, Manufacturing Assembly, Client Services and Graphic studio services will remain in operation in the Terre Haute site.

Disc manufacturing will continue to take place at Sony DADC’s main Central European Manufacturing hub in Salzburg, Austria. The disc manufacturing capacity held in Terre Haute will be integrated into the facility in Austria.

This set-up allows Sony DADC to remain a strong and reliable partner as end-to-end service provider for the entertainment industry and beyond.

Statement from Sony DADC regarding consolidation

Over the phone Thursday, Gephardt said that approximately 100 jobs will be cut due to the consolidation. However, approximately 150 employees will continue to work at the Terre Haute facility in Distribution, Manufacturing Assembly, Client Services and Graphic studio services.
