TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Big layoffs are on the way for a major Terre Haute employer.
On Wednesday, we learned that Sony DADC plans to let go of half of their workforce.
Sources tell News 10 some employees have already been let go at Sony DADC in Terre Haute.
According to a document called a Warn Notice, terminations could continue through August.
This all comes following an outsourcing agreement.
That's according to Sony spokesperson Lisa Gephardt.
She says manufacturing of CDs and DVDs will move to "Technicolor Home Entertainment" based out of California.
Gephardt says more competition from streaming services also played a part in this decision.
In the meantime, the Terre Haute plant will continue to make Playstation related items.
Officials told us they anticipate about 375 people to be let go.
On Wednesday, we reached out to several employees.
On Thursday, we will reach out to city leaders.
We're hoping to hear from both in the coming days.
Gephardt said the company will continue to employ around 300 people.
