keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer. Surely by buying out one of your major competitors gives a good shot of controlling your marketplace

Defo - I always saw Avon & Zodiac as the major players in the light leisure use sector of RIBS...however Zodiac I think had invested a lot in automated production of the smaller size hulls which Avon I think would eventually have lost out to ...so if Zodiac offered the right price ....they'd have been nuts not to agree to sell out and of course they are also buying the Avon brand value....

I'm still pleased to own a 'real' UK built Avon Avon....
