In production since 1975, this largest car making factory of China produces one-third of China's total. Its 50,000 employees are assigned to 27 plants scattered about in the new city of Shiyan built in the hilly area of Central China, and 3 in the periphery. Average distance separating the plants is 3-5 km. The scattered location pattern, made necessary by the local topography and by the consideration of shelter from attack, entailed heavy initial investment in building and high assembling and distribution costs. However, it brought development to an otherwise backward area by giving it a system of growth poles. (TNC).
