Sony to close its last American TV plant by 2010


The last Sony TV manufacturing plant in the U.S. will cease production by February 2009, closing completely one year later. It’s located in Westmoreland County in southwestern Pennsylvania, and some 560 people are expected to lose their jobs. A manufacturing facility in Mexico will supply the U.S. with Sony TVs following Westmoreland’s closure.

This is part of the huge restructuring that Sony announced several days ago. Changing market conditions, people losing their houses, etc. Rotten news all around.
