Amtech has annual sale of $80 million and employs 800 people. The president of 5 Star believes that 5 Star is a far superior company, attributing its effectiveness to management’s ability to run a tight ship. 5 Star had detailed charts and job descriptions. Tyler believed that everyone should have clear responsibilities and narrowly defined jobs.

The Amtech managers resisted the merger, but 5 Star president is determined to unify the companies quickly.
