JVC Disc America expands its DVD production facilities

JVC Disc America has plans to expand its manufacturing plant in California to almost twice its current size to accommodate the demand of the ever growing DVD market. The expansion will add some 88, 000 square feet to the existing plant, which is currently mostly focussed on the production of CDs and CD-ROMs. Soon however that will change. The industry expects requirements to replicate some 250 million discs this year, a number that does not seem to be too unrealistic in the light of soaring DVD player sales and the rapid adoption of this video format.
Once finished with the expansion, the Sacramento plant of JVC Disc America will be able to produce about 3 million CDs and 1.7 million DVDs a month. This balance will eventually shift towards DVD, as the CD format will gradually be replaced by DVD in the future.
