There are still plenty of 'vertically integrated' factories around, as I believe the technique is called. For example one of my clients makes washing up liquid and they make the liquid, mould the bottles and print the labels all in house. When the appliance company Creda was here locally, their in-house press shop made all the hinges, catches, brackets etc on rows of metal presses, the wiring harnesses and looms were all made from scratch from rolls of wire etc
