Sony enters UK distribution sector

As predicted by MCV this week (see today’s issue), the duplication and distribution giant has purchased a replication site and a distribution facility from Deluxe Media, a division of the Rank Group. The units are based in Southwater and Enfield.

The key issue for the rest of the distribution market is Sony DADC’s plans to supply product – on behalf of the publishers it already works with in terms of duplication services – direct to retail, rather than those companies using third party firms such as Gem, Centresoft and Pinnacle.

“The new facilities are important for us in improving and expanding our product and services portfolio for the entertainment industry in the UK,” explained president  Dieter Daum. “Merging these facilities with the Sony DADC network will further enable us to offer enhanced supply chain options like finishing on demand, fast replenishment and direct-to-retail shipments.”
