 PITMAN, N.J., May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Music Entertainment, which has expanded its compact disc (CD) manufacturing plant, was recognized at a press conference today by Gov. Jim Florio and Congressman Bill Hughes (D-2) for its role in boosting New Jersey's economy. THe expansion of the plant will generate approximately 100 new jobs and enable Sony to increase CD production 50 percent up to 74 million units annually, making the Pitman facility one of the largest CD manufacturing plants in the world.
 "Sony is part of the bright economic future of New Jersey, the inventor state," Gov. Florio said. "Sony and New Jersey are perfect together."
 Also attending were Pitman Mayor Bruce Ware; Gloucester County Freeholder Director John Maier; Michael Schulhof, chairman of Sony Music Entertainment; Thomas Mottola, president of Sony Music; and other Sony Music officials.
 The expansion, which will be operational in June, is expected to bring in $10 million in construction contracts to the surrounding community. It is the first of three-phase plan which will eventually enable Sony in the future to manufacture over 120 million CD's annually, according to Stan Nimiroski, vice president of Pitman Manufacturing, who oversees the plant operation.
 "With this expansion, our facility becomes one of the largest CD manufacturers in the country," said Nimiroski. "We look forward to even greater growth in the future." Sony's plant which has been located in Pitman for 31 years, currently employs approximately 950 people.
