Velvet Users in the Southeastern US
The research found several companies using velvet in the requested states of Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, and North Carolina. The final report manages to go over the requested three companies, and comprises seven sales leads in Georgia, five sales leads in Maryland, five sales leads in Virginia, and five sales leads in North Carolina, excluding the companies found in the early findings. All the companies listed either use velvet in their operations, or resell the fabric itself. The details provided in the "product line" column go into more detail, although no store limits their velvet use to a single product line. The full report can be found here.
Since the companies need to use a relatively large volume of velvet to be worth targeting by a bulk manufacturer, the research focused on fabric warehouses, theater supply companies, and large furnishing operations in the given states of Maryland, Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina. While most of the information required (e.g. company name, product lines, address, phone number) was usually found on the companies' websites, at times lacking pieces of information (usually a contact person) was taken from other sources like press releases and LinkedIn.
