The tables below are provided for convenience to help professionals find the websites of leading companies in the region, and to help executives find other companies and the local area representatives who support direct investment in their location.

We welcome additional suggestions of major or fast-growing companies which are headquartered in the region, or have invested in major subunits there. 

Typically we will only list companies with more than 250 employees worldwide or 100 employees at the location of a major subunit, since our focus is on serving companies of sufficient size and growth rate to create more than 50 new jobs within 3 years when they set up operations in new locations.

The presence or absence of any organization on these lists, or their position on the lists, does not imply any endorsement or opinion about their products or services, nor by them about our own.  The list also does not indicate whether or not we maintain relationships with such companies, or know anything about their investment plans.

The selections are simply intended to be helpful to professionals who may be unaware where such companies are located, or how to reach their websites quickly for more information.  This can support professional services, investment promotion activities, and investor retention or "aftercare" activities to stay informed about the companies.

If you need a database of companies, sources are in the Research section.

For convenience, at the bottom of this page, we have also included links to sources for company research, company lists for other regions, and global lists of professional service providers and area representatives for investment attraction and retention.

Please let us know if you discover any obsolete listings (such as from M&A activity, relocations, closures, etc.) or broken website links so that we may update our records.

We have also provided columns to allow for direct links to the website of the local area representatives where the company headquarters or major subsidiary is located, and to the GUIDE Area Profile of that area, if available.

Refer also the sections on Corporate Participants , Projects, and Referral Highlights.

Headquarters or major subunits located in the region, including foreign-owned subunits.
