The point is that "businesses" aren't looking to expand their production here. They're looking to loot existing production for assets and contracts they can shift to cheaper regions. The fact that corporate ownership is so flaky and flighty these days only goes to show how irrelevant is is in practical terms to the process itself.

Sadly, I don't know that this holds as much immediate promise as, say, the old Lakeport plant would have, in terms of selling the product. I prefer to think of such things as "diversifying holdings for the long term". If this happens more than a few times, the network would be well-served by such heavy manufacturing abilities. In any case, it's about a lot more than just immediate sales potential.
