In a bid to strengthen its position in the computer display market, Sony Corp is spending $60m on expanding its large screen computer cathode ray tube production. The company’s fifteen-year- old Technology Center in San Diego will see the addition of 450 new employees and, when the operation is up and running next year, Sony believes it will be able to increase CRT production to around six million units a year. As part of the expansion it has opened a $25m, 277,000 square foot, three story building that will be home to a new center, called Genesis, for engineering and development. The Genesis center will serve as Sony Electronics’ in-house think tank where new products and manufacturing methods will be created and tested.
