All companies included in the editorial parts 1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 are listed alphabetically, whereby additionally to the company name details about the city and country, where the company is located, are stated. Beneath this you will be referred in the second column to the part and in the third column to the page where the company entry can be found.
The company reports are classified by country in the free editorial parts, whereby the countries are classified by country names in English language. Within the countries the company names are classified alphabetically.
The individual products are allocated to specific category numbers in parts 3, 6 and 10. In a summary at the beginning of the sections you will find a list of the individual product groups and an alphabetical summary of the possible categories. If you turn to the category number of the product you are looking for, you will then find details of the companies, which supply the product, classified by country. In view of the fact that this is an insertion part subject to charge, it may well be with certain companies that you will only find an entry with the name of the company. If this is the case, the company has not placed a settled order and we have to ask you to take a look at the General Index to find the page with detailed information in the editorial parts.
Trademarks and Watermarks:
Part 4 includes trademarks and watermarks in alphabetical order with product specificatons. Every company has the possibility to enlarge this entry with the company name and address for charge. Where this data is missing we have not received an order and we ask you to please ask our publishing house for the name of the manufacturer.
