Externalisation and the formation of new industrial operations: a neglected dimension in the dynamics of industrial location

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Major changes are occurring in the geography of production and this has been reflected in the changing boundaries of the firm. These changes have brought new insights into the changing economics and organisation of the firm and this paper looks at one element of this dynamic: the formation of new industrial actors. It seeks to show that the traditional perception of the sources of new entrants in the industrial system in the form of new firms, plants and subsidiaries neglects an important sub-group of new actors namely new operations which are formed and develop within existing firms and which may then be subsequently externalised. -Author
