AGGLOMERATION

  • Grouping together of firms from the same industry in a single area for collective or cooperative use of infrastructure and sharing of labor resources (ex. Computer industry in Silicon Valley, Fashion industry in Paris or Milan)

    • Deglomeration – dispersal of a previously agglomerated industry (when cost of living became too high some high tech firms left Silicon Valley, San Francisco area)

      CONGLOMERATE CORPORATION

  • A firm that is comprised of many smaller firms that serve several different functions (ex. General Motors – automobile)

ANCILLARY

  • Economic activities that surround and support large-scale industries such as shipping and food service
