In a rapidly changing world, productions and plants come to 'end of life' more quickly than in the past and, often, any investment in new plants is more cost-effective in other industrial sites or larger green field projects.
The contraction of demand in some sectors jeopardizes the sustainability of entire production chains and, consequently, adjustments in production capacity are necessary for competitive reasons.
For certain types of 'labour intensive' production, countries with low labour costs are more attractive to large groups, which are constantly looking for greater efficiency and margins.
Both acquisitions and divestments are often part of the same development strategy. Organisational flexibility therefore becomes a necessary condition for the correct maintenance of economic balances.
