? about buyouts

With the announcement of Iowa glass and Percession.And Pilkington taking over Old Dominion S.C. branches.This to me looks like a chess game with big powers dominating small.Where will small shops end up? First ins. co. then NAGS now mergers to hurt small people.How do you know what tomorrow will bring with these mergers.I feel we are being pushed out.

Re: ? about buyouts

stop worrying about everybody else and focus on what you can do to stay ahead of the game.I know it sounds harsh but it does help,we all deal with it.Yes it does suck I agree!

Re: ? about buyouts

If you can support an independent dist do so that would help alot.

Re: ? about buyouts

Glassrat, my point is when these are your local dist. accuired by big corps. the wholesale picture changes.This will in turn reflect on your bussiness.So therefore this is a concern.Many co. like ourselves dont buy truckload but we have a very decent wholesale volume.

Re: ? about buyouts

You are correct Ryans. If you only have PPG or Pilkington to choose from things will change and not for the better.

Re: ? about buyouts

Both of you guys are correct,as soon as ppg bought IGD the prices went up along with crappy service.There will be alot more of this to come as we will see alot of merging in this ag industry which will make it hard for alot of market players.This is what a couple of big ag companys want.This is just the start to a rougher road.We will all feel the pinch,and it stinks!! There, I am done complaining for now.
