Sony DADC back in business after North London warehouse burnt down

Following the total arson destruction of its 24,000-square meter CD/DVD/BD distribution centre in Enfield, North London – in the wake of London’s riots – Sony DADC has announced it is working very closely with its customers and, based on their release schedules, 1.5 million discs are in the process of being remanufactured at both manufacturing sites in the UK and Austria.

In addition, Sony says it is extending its direct-to-retail distribution from its UK manufacturing site to reduce shipment delays. Discs which are currently in their inventory have already been shipped yesterday and the first of the remanufactured discs from the stock affected by the fire is to be delivered today.

“We are already studying a number of medium-to-long term solutions of alternative site options for business continuity and, in this context, we have received a number of offers of support from Sony affiliate companies, local distribution centres and other companies from within the industry,” the company says.
