    • Different Types of Industry
      • Heavy Industry – In these types of industries the resource materials and the products being made are big and heavy. Iron and steel making is an example of a heavy industry.
      • Light Industry – In these types of industries the products being made are small and light. Electronic products and healthcare products are examples.
      • Multi-national Corporations (MNC’s) – These types of companies make their products in many different countries. Examples include Coca Cola, Microsoft and Nike.
    • Heavy and Light Industries in Ireland
              • Heavy
      • Light
      • Irish Cement Limited
      • Location: Platin, Co. Louth
      • It is an example of a MNC
      • PC Pro
      • Location: Togher, Co. Cork
      • It is located in an industrial estate
    • Study Note!
      • At this point you should be able to describe the difference between a heavy and a light industry.
      • You should also be able to give an Irish example of each type of industry
    • Where should I build my Factory?
    • Nearby Markets Labour Supply Energy Sources Location Factors Raw Material Available Land Government Money
    • Factors affecting the location of Industry Resource Materials Markets Transport Facilities Labour Services Capital Government/ EU Policy Preferred place Of the Owner Location Factors
    • How do these things influence where factories are built ?
      • Resource Materials: These
      • are the raw materials or semi
      • finished products that the
      • factory needs to make things.
      • If the resource materials are
      • big and heavy, the factory will
      • need to be built close to the
      • resource materials.
      • If not it would be too difficult
      • and expensive to move the
      • resource materials to the
      • factory.
    • How do these things influence where factories are built?
      • 2. Markets: Access to markets means being close to the places where
      • you are going to sell your products and the customers who are going to
      • buy them. The closer you are the less transport costs you will have to
      • pay to distribute your goods. Therefore you can do it faster and
      • cheaper.
      • 3. Transport Facilities: All factories need to transport their finished
      • products to their customers. If the products are to be sold in the same
      • country then good road or rail transport is required. If the company is
      • exporting their products they will need to be close to the airport or a
      • port.
      • Can you think of the different ways goods are transported?
    • How are Goods Transported?
    • How do these things influence where factories are built?
      • 4. Labour: Labour means
      • the workforce.
      • All factories need workers and so
      • the factory must be built where
      • there are enough workers.
      • Some factories require low
      • skilled workers.
      • Other companies may require
      • highly skilled university
      • graduates to work in their
      • factories. For example, Intel.
    • How do these things influence where factories are built?
      • 5. Services: Services means having things like electricity, water, sewage
      • treatment, telephone, and broadband internet access. Most companies need good quality services and so they set up only were these things are available.
    • How do these things influence where factories are built?
      • 6. Capital: Capital means the money the company needs to set up
      • their factory. They may need to get investment from banks to help with
      • these costs.
    • How do these things influence where factories are built?
      • 7. Government/EU Policy:
      • Governments do many things to
      • encourage companies to set up in
      • their country.
      • The Irish government gives grants to
      • companies who set up here. We also
      • have a low corporate tax rate. They
      • may also build factories for the
      • companies and pay money towards
      • training workers.
      • Q. How has membership of the EU helped Ireland attract companies to set up here.
    • How do these things influence where factories are built?
      • 8. Preferences of Business person/local communities:
      • Some people may set up a factory in an area where they like or were
      • they come from.
      • Local people often are happy when companies set up in their area
      • because it provides jobs.
      • However, other people may not want factories because it increases the
      • traffic and the number of trucks on the road. It may also cause noise,
      • visual, and air pollution.
    • Have you ever heard the word before? Can you take a guess??
    • Footloose Industry
      • In the past industries could only set up in places where there was lots of coal available. This is because coal was the main source of energy at the time.
      • Coal was used in the production of Iron and Steel, and it was also used to create steam to power the spinning machines to make textiles.
      • These days many manufacturing industries can set up in many different locations. They are not tied to one place and so they are called Footloose Industries.
      • Footloose Industries usually locate in industrial estates or business parks close to large cities. Examples include Citywest, Park West, and Grange Castle.
    • Footloose Industry
      • Footloose Industries usually locate in industrial estates or business parks.
    •  
    • Industrial Inertia
      • This is when an industry does not move to a new location even when changing locational factors suggest that it should do so.
    • Study Note! At this point you should be able to describe some features that affect the location of material You should also be familiar with some of the features that affected the location of PC Pro and Irish Cement Limited (the information for this is in your books on pg. 308/309 and also on the handout I gave you in class). You should also be able to describe what a footloose industry and industrial inertia mean
