Nearly everyone can name at least a couple of the world’s largest manufacturing companies, especially if they are automobile makers, computer manufacturing companies, mobile equipment makers or laptop manufacturing companies. And many can name a couple of the largest weapons manufacturers in the world.

But how about naming one of the top 10 stone crushing manufacturing companies in the world? Or how about naming the largest companies manufacturing construction and mining equipment? And maybe just one in 100 people could name one of the largest sauna manufacturing companies in the world. Where do we go to get the most accurate information on the world’s largest manufacturers?

Some argue that China, with its hundreds of thousands of manufacturing and tech-related companies, is now the world’s most competitive business environment. If true, and it most likely is, it is important for companies everywhere to be able to find good data on potential competitors.
