Can I say: I welcome friendship and company?

Hi, can I write “I welcome friendship and company” in essay? Can the word “company” be used here? Or is “companionship” better? I am a bit confused over these two words.
Should I say: “I appreciate the company of others” or “I appreciate the companionship of others”?

Thanks a lot.

All those variations are possible, though from the little informatyion provided I suspect ‘companionship’ would be better.
It really depends on the greater context.

‘Company’ may mean just the ‘presence’ or ‘being together’ for a short time while ‘companionship’ means ‘state being together’ more often or even always, like a friend.

Thanks a lot guys!!
