mothballing(redirected from mothballings)
A practice in which a company keeps equipment in a factory or other production facility in working order but does not use it on a constant basis. This is useful when a company has high operating costs and it would be more expensive to use the facility. Mothballing allows the company to save its expenses and still use the facility when needed.
