Competition analysis

On 26 April 2005 the ACCC decided not to oppose the the restructuring of Toyota Industries Corporation Australia's distribution arrangements with Mander Group and Raymond Corporation. The ACCC considered that the restructuring was unlikely to raise upstram rivals' costs because Raymond Australia Pty Ltd and the Mander Group only distributed Toyota related products, and new and existing competitors could access existing distributors, establish a new distribution network or appoint a reseller for the distribution of industrial equipment in Australia.
