Kodak to build $45 million plant
The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle has reported that Kodak is to spend around $45 million building a new plant, which will produce supplies for creating prints from digital cameras. The new factory in Kodak Park, Monroe County will create around 50 jobs, which it will fill with existing personnel. It is expected to open in mid-2006. The creation of the new digital media plant is as a result of dramatic growth in the use of Kodak PictureMaker digital kiosks and the home PrinterDock. Around 40 buildings are being demolished and others are being put up for sale at Kodak Park as part of its three-year program to reduce its facilities' square footage by a third, and employment by 12,000-15,000.
