Number of Manufacturing Plants
The Number of Manufacturing Plants is calculated by adding up all of the manufacturing facilities owned by a company.
This metric is used in the Manufacturing Industry like Auto Manufacturers. It provides insight into the overall size of the company and its total production capabilities. A company with a high number of manufacturing plants likely produces a greater number of vehicles and has a greater production capacity. However, this metric is not necessarily as useful at comparing companies of different size. The largest manufacturer is expected to have many more manufacturing plants than a small sized company. Yet, this metric does provide indication of the general size of the company.
