"The Groups of Rural System
Rural System is a single corporate conglomerate composed of many Groups or enterprises. From the beginning, people have asked for simplifying ways to see Rural System, for alternative ways to organize the enterprises, corporate divisions, or groups. They sought types, and clusters of the ideas, enterprises, products, etc. It is large, complex, diverse, and parts are overlapping and highly interrelated (all by design). Like a little ecosystem, there is no single best order, no sure place to get started. We tried separating enterprises or groups by work done largely indoors or outdoors but, for fairly obvious reason, that failed.
Here is our current grouping, without priority or assigned values, and it too may change (for example, the limited grouping of "Products and Services").
From here you may link to any Group and then its offerings from this catalog.
