While information relating to each company's revenue and product offerings was found using annual reports, company databases such as Zoominfo, Glassdoor and official websites, their key clients was not as readily available. Our first approach was to search through company websites for evidence of client case studies or testimonials, we then expanded our search into media articles, news and customer review sites such as Featured Customers to find the information. While we were able to find clients of Scott using the second strategy, there was insufficient recent sources available to focus on key clients that are from North America.
We then attempted to find mentions of other companies that they have partnered with to provide collaborative product offerings to clients. We were able to find two examples of partners for BS&B Safety systems. However, information relating to clients of Zook was not found using the above three strategies as it was not publicly available. While we were able to find a few press mentions of Schott and BS&B Safety systems relating to their involvement with electric vehicles (information was scarce), such mentions were not found for Zook.
