what do other people think of this

Beetek make plastic frames and Ecroyd are beekeeping supplies

Could bee a good move? Ordering boxes, roofs, floors, plastic frames, queen excluders or propolis mats or autumn Varroa treatment and you only have to deal with one person. No calling around.

Or could bee a bad move? Like logistics or staff fail, power outages, natural disasters...

Bigger is not always better.

Prices may come down?

Just thinking out loud...:rolleyes:

of course, and we've got Arataki here in HB... but I find that I prefer to do my planning and purchasing at home, and usually outside shop hours, ie, online. So I use Arataki for the small or urgent purchases, but do my bigger orders direct to Ecroyd.

Is this actually a merger? Or an acquisition by Ecroyd's? In which case you'd still have Ecroyd's in the South Island and Ecrotek in the North Island. Would have thought that one was far larger than the other for an even merger!

They need a different graphic designer. The symbol, and the name, are weird.

 

I know the idea is 2 things joining. But they both still weird. Who wants to say Ecrotek?

 

What else do I think? That the cost of frames might go up.
