Authors: Derek Channon (Imperial College London)
Published in: 1982

Abstract

Second of two cases (382-025-1 and 382-026-1), YKK (B) deals with the company''s operations in the UK and the effect these have had on the British zip fastener industry. The case raises issues about the impact of inward investment, which, in the YKK case, results in the net loss of several thousand jobs and the reversal of a balance of payments surplus into a deficit by the introduction of an extremely efficient and price aggressive competitor.
