    M/s is use for company because in law company is a person it has all the right which has a man. Like a person born company also born and as a person died a comapny also died. Compnay has its own identity and have so may rights. So that like we use a man/women mr. mrs, or miss for giving them respect same as we use m/s for company Messrs =Mr. for more knowledge you should read company law.

    • M/s stands for 'Messrs' which is literally plural of Mr. But I don't know why we use it b4 a co. name. Note that while writing a letter to a co., we use 'Dear Sirs' instead of 'Dear Sir'. It's probably a tradition.
