I am just curious, I read a thread recently about merging two companies and such. I know that the majority on here say don't do that or have a partnership. But what has my curiosity is about the bigger companies. In every turf magazine they do a spot light on a company and more times than not they have partnership and sometimes have multiple partners. They usually appear to be doing very well. Since the majority here say no to it, What are the circumstances (very rare evidently) that a merger of 2 similar minded lco's could make it into a partnership and grow the biz. Idilizing the strengths and weaknesses of both. That other thread just got me thinking about it and thought surely there is a way and can work, and not just work but be better???? Anyone else have some thoughts on this?
