Abstract

A chemical company has two plants A and B which are geographically separated, A being situated in the north and B in the south of the country. In the main A and B are operated as separate manufacturing units subject to over-all policy co-ordination and financial control. This autonomy exercised by the individual plants has arisen historically, and is due in part to physical separation but more explicitly to differences in the types of products produced and the markets served.
