Amid reports of a takeover of UniCarriers by KION or Mitsubishi, there’s an interesting take in our Discussion Forum.
One member notes that there are “too many manufacturers in this business” and suggests more should be going out of business.  
It’s true that a number of brands are becoming more and more marginalised as the big get bigger. And yes, there are economies of scale that can result in better products being offered at more competitive prices.
But with any reduction in the number of suppliers, there’s always a risk of diminished competition.
The flip side, however, is that as long as there is more than one player in the market, there is competitive tension.
Meanwhile, we’ll wait for the official confirmation of the UniCarriers deal that inevitably follows the 'no comment' phase.
