Sony has announced that it is considering closing its UK-based cd and blu-ray distribution center in Enfield. Sony DADC has been in Enfield since the early 1980s and is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of CDs, DVDs, umd and bluray discs.
The reason for the possible closure is the change in consumer habits, ie, in practice, the switch-over of users to streaming services. The closure decision is not yet certain, as Sony is still investigating the potential impact of the decision.
In the fire of the warehouse in 2011, as much as a quarter of all UK home entertainment boards were destroyed. It is now threatened by the final closure. However, Sony does not stop DADC’s operations in Europe as Austria, the Czech Republic and Spain continue to operate at least for the time being.
