Surely one factor, but I doubt it's the major factor. 

Companies don't warehouse much anymore. They use "just-in-time" 
supply chain methods. No materials come in unless they need them that 
day, and finished product goes out immediately.

So, if the factory ceases production, availability of the product 
that factory was making stops, like right now.
