Do these Coys manufacture machines?
Or do they source bin parts, assemble or have assembled, or source product from Chinese manufacturers?
I would like to know the facts?
Whatever is actually true, the result may improve companies bargaining power with the manufacturers and profit margins for the share holders.
I would expect "rationalisation" and reduction of competition in the market place and consumers to pay the price.
Profiteering would create an opportunity for a third player to penetrate their markets.
The companies together or separately will manage the consumers (the market) for their own convenience as best they can.
Just the way of the world, forget the rhetoric.
