Deutsch: Firma
A company is an association or collection of individuals, people or "warm-bodies" or else contrived "legal persons" (or a mixture of both). Company members share a common purpose and unite in order to focus their various talents and organize their collectively available skills or resources to achieve specific, declared goals.

In an industrial or manufacturing context, "company" typically refers to an organization that is engaged in the production, distribution, or sale of goods or services. A company can be a business, corporation, or enterprise that operates within a specific industry or sector.
