There are many reasons to consider consolidating facilities.
Perhaps you’ve made an acquisition, and the new plants represent
excess capacity or overlap with your existing facilities. Maybe
you need access to valuable markets
and suppliers, or you’re considering an area with
lower manufacturing costs or a more favorable labor environment. Whatever the reason, there are many economic considerations to
take into account, including:
• Facility investment
• One-time inventory reduction
• Proceeds from the sale of real estate or plant equipment
• Material and inventory-carrying costs
• Contribution on incremental sales
• Plant closing and start-up
• Factory and administrative labor
• Logistics and occupancy costs
