LexisNexis U.S., a provider of information and services solutions, has announced the launch of a corporate affiliations site, a pay-as-you-go or monthly subscription site, for finding corporate linkage information on nearly 200,000 public and private parent companies and their subsidiaries, divisions, joint ventures, and affiliates. This online database includes approximately 50,000 U.S. public, 55,000 international, and 78,000 private active parent and child company/organizational records.
The database provides information updated weekly from 6,500 news sources. The database also simplifies contacting corporations by providing the address, phone, fax, URL, and names and email addresses of personnel at each corporation. By entering a product or brand name, the database retrieves and displays the parent company and its family tree. Additional methods of finding a company include searching by a NAICS code, business description, geographical location, or size of business. A reading room option allows end-users to save records for up to one year.
