Case Study of Horizontal Itnegration

An example of horizontal integration would be the merger between BHP and Billiton (both mining companies). They merged, forming a large corporation operating in various countries. They previously both mined for various minerals, and because they were both practicing the same techniques and were practically competitors, their merger can be seen as horizontal integration.
