Why are mutual fund companies with high expenses still around?

I’ve noticed that there are numerous, numerous mutual fund companies that have funds with expense ratios exceeding 2, 3, and even 4 percent. With fund companies like Vanguard and Fidelity offering funds with expeses that are a fraction of that, why are people still investing in high-expense funds?

Is it wise to invest in different mutual fund companies or just one?

Is it wise to invest in different mutual fund companies or just one company for maximum returns? My reason is that in case Company A fails, I still have a backup with other companies.

What is your opinion on this, will it matter if I invest in different companies? What are the chances that a mutual fund company will actually fail/close?
About diversification: isn’t mutual funds already in itself diversification?
