Abstract
Many engineers see plant location selection only as an interesting task and a minor part of process and plant engineering. At the same time plant location selection is an important part of the corporate level strategic management and decision making. This paper discusses the types of interactions between plant location selection and strategic long term value creation at the corporate level. The research approach used in this case study is a combination of the classic value chain model and the core elements of plant location selection methods. The most important findings are that the plant location selection and the chosen technology are the core internal elements at the corporate level for long term value creation.
