Request for Question Clarification by
24 Jan 2005 12:40 PST
I've compiled the list below based on the criteria you provided.
I'm posting this information as a Request for Clarification rather
than as a formal answer because I have not found a managable way to
confirm that these companies do, in fact, meet your needs in terms of
being stand-alone and in terms of resolving discrepancies or
ambiguities in their sales data.
If this is not a satisfactory list, let me know what it needs by the
way of improvements or validation, and I'll do my best.
An awfully good resource for starters is the company profiles listings
at the Adhesives Magazine/ASI site:
