Abstract

Japanese investment in automobile production in North America and Western Europe during the 1980s and early 1990s posed some sharp questions about the future of domestically owned assemblers and automotive component companies. The paper examines the extent to which JIT-style systems of production were emerging and the degree to which JIT production carried tendencies toward spatial clustering. The analysis focuses on restructuring within the European automotive components industry
