GKN is still manufacturing stuff and it is going strong (44,000 employees and a turnover of £ 7,136,000,000 in 2013). Companies merge and are taken over all the time.

Yes and people lose jobs because of take overs, my wife and I were victims of such and given only one days notice despite a combined service of 28 years ;¬(
