La relocalización es una decisión estratégica empresarial que supone el cambio de localización de una actividad hacia un ámbito distinto. La existencia de un entorno con grandes interdependencias entre las empresas e instituciones, como es el caso de los distritos industriales puede sugerir una mayor resistencia a este fenómeno. Nos planteamos verificar en qué medida las empresas del distrito relocalizan sus actividades, presentar un modelo de relocalización y comparar la situación actual de relocalización de actividades en el distrito con la de una década atrás. Con el fin responder a estas cuestiones hemos estudiado el caso del distrito industrial cerámico de Castellón. Los resultados del estudio realizado sugieren que el capital social en el distrito industrial actúa como aglutinador de actividades limitando el proceso de relocalización. / The strategic decision of re-location means moving one activity from one location to another. The existence of one environment with high interdependences between firms and institutions, such as in industrial districts, may offer a greater resistance to relocation process. We aim to question whether this statement is true or not, that means, to what extent firms in districts relocate activities? In order to address these questions we observe the extent of the rcoletion activities for the firms of the ceramic tile industrial district in Castellon. We suggested that the social capital at industrial district may act as a real inhibitor for decisions of locating activities outside the district.
