Is there a business term for a company's whose products and services are entirely in support of another company's product or service? For example

  • Companies that sell door fronts, door pulls and couch covers specifically for Ikea furniture.
  • Repair companies that only repair one specific product or line of products.
  • A software company that exclusively creates plug-ins for another company's software.

Sample sentence: "All our products are accessories for Playosityᵀᴹ dolls because we are a ___ company."

  • Presumably, these businesses are not direct subsiduaries of the company whose products/services they support? Nov 21 at 10:23
  • @KillingTime I suppose they could be. A word that includes both subsidiary companies and independent companies would be fine. Nov 21 at 10:25
  • @HighPerformanceMark I edited my question. Nov 21 at 11:00
  • The Q is a little broad...does OEM work?
