Underworld is the local factory in Coronation Street. The factory produced mainly underwear and had been owned by multiple people over the years. The factory was first seen in 1990 when the modern side of the street was built. The factory was originally a printing workshop called Dun 2 A T owned by Steve McDonald. Eventually, Mike Baldwin bought the building, named it Underworld, and started manufacturing sportswear. Mike got a contract with Stephen Reid, Gail's brother and representitive of the Canadian company Kbec. When Mike started doing cheap copies of Kbec's goods, Stephen threatened to take legal action against Mike. This was when Don Brennan, who had a grudge against Mike since he sold him a bankrupt garage, set fire to the factory for revenge. Thus, any evidence that Stephen would have used to prosecute Mike had gone up in smoke. When the factory was rebuilt, Mike got a contract with Angie Freeman to manufacture lingerie. The new factory caught fire in 2004 when Janice Battersby caused a fire by dropping a cigarette onto a pile of clothes in the stockroom. Nick Tilsley saved Janice but they both lost their jobs. After Mike died in 2006, his son, Danny ran the factory until 2007 when Jamie Baldwin and Adam Barlow sold it to Paul and Liam Connor. Carla inherited Paul's half of the factory when he was killed in 2007. Liam took on Paul's widow Carla and new comer Tony Gordon. When Liam was murdered by Tony (for having an affair with Tony's fiancee Carla), Tony took over. Underworld was destroyed by a fire on 9th June 2010 but was re-opened. Carla Connor accepts a business contract from Frank Foster, who, after signing a contract then owns 40% of the company.

The Curse of Underworld

Underworld is notorious for strings of bad luck and death in recent years, including people associated with it. Mike Baldwin died after a battle with alzheimers in 2006 in the arms of rival Ken Barlow on the factory steps. In 2007, a polish factory worker died falling down thes stairs. Later in the year, factory boss Paul Connor died in a car crash. A year later, his brother Liam was murdered by new factory owner Tony Gordon, who was engaged to Paul's widowed wife Carla. Tony also attempted to kill pensioner Jed Stone on Christmas 2008, but had spared him and moved him away from the area. Tony perished in 2010 when he burnt down the factory with Carla in it, although she escaped. A month after the incident, John Stape buried his old work colleague Colin Fishwick under the factory after stealing his identity and Colin died. The body was recovered a year later. Carla's new business partner Frank Foster raped her, but was mysteriously found dead in the factory in 2012 after conning the factory out of her.

The owners of the factory over the years have been:
