Abstract

This case describes a small electroplating company which operates mainly in the expensive, high quality gold plating business, but also processes more basic metals. The company is facing a problem of growth. It inhabits two small leased premises in the centre of the city, but mindful of the risks involved in leasing, it has bought a single new factory. The case examines the decision to buy this new factory in hindsight and presents the problems which the company faces in trying to move in. This case is one of a series intended for use on undergraduate Business Studies or business-related degree programmes, as an introduction to Operations Management (680-004-1 to 680-014-1).
