Welcome to WikiProject Companies, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of companies.
Take a look around and consider joining our efforts!

Join in!

Please consider helping our WikiProject's article improvement drive!! We would like to see the project banner and portal, {{WikiProject Companies}} and {{portal|Companies}}, added to all articles about notable companies within Wikipedia. The infobox company template is used on over 49,000 articles, so there are plenty out there!



Our goal is to improve the depth and breadth of coverage in Wikipedia of notable companies and to bring as many of these articles to good / featured status as possible. For a list of open tasks, please see the to-do list.


Notable for-profit companies, businesses & corporations, no matter where based, whether public or private, existing or merged/liquidated.

Self-Promotion/Conflict of Interest

As Wikipedia's popularity has increased, there have been instances of companies or individuals working at companies creating or modifying articles in order to make their company appear more favorably. This practice is in violation of Wikipedia guidelines and is frowned upon by the community in general and this WikiProject. If you are one of those persons, you are asked to read WP:BFAQ, which will help you to understand why this practice is an issue.

In addition, please read the rating criteria guidelines, when adding a page to the WP:Companies project, to ensure that you do not appear to be trying to boost a company's visibility on Wikipedia for a gain.

  • 30 Nov 2015 – Mighty Leaf Tea (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): Mostly locally known and thinly notable so perhaps not enough for better improvement and notability, searches found several links especially News and some at browser so WP:TNT at best until a better article is available.
  • 30 Nov 2015 – Line Communications (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): Almost even speedy material and I would tag as such but I'm not sure if it will be removed so PROD searches found nothing at all to suggest better improvement.
  • 29 Nov 2015 – Ecoisland Partnership CIC (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): Questionably notable and improvable as I simply found nothing particularly better than some passing mentions.
  • 29 Nov 2015 – Democracy Data & Communications (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): My searches simply found nothing better some passing mentions, hardly notable yet with no better improvement.
  • 29 Nov 2015 – Virginia Hayward Ltd (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by Huon (t · c): Non-notable company, content not based on reliable sources and unduly promotional.
  • 28 Nov 2015 – Netviewer (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): Certainly questionably notable as my searches simply found nothing better than some passing mentions at News and browsers, WP:TNT at best if ever better notable.
  • 28 Nov 2015 – Life123 (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): Seemingly non-notable website (seems to have been best known for the connection and has since been owned by other entities) as my searches found nothing at all and it seems it's even now non-existent, therefore no signs at all of keepable ...
  • 28 Nov 2015 – Microscan Systems (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): Borderline G11 and searches found nothing better than press releases and trivial mentions, hardly notable yet. Notifying past taggers Ronz and Ukexpat in case they're interested to comment.
  • 27 Nov 2015 – CMEA Capital (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): My searches simply found nothing better than trivial passing mentions, certainly not significantly notable.
  • 27 Nov 2015 – Versant Corporation (talk · edit · hist) was PRODed by SwisterTwister (t · c): My searches found nothing better than trivial passing mentions, certainly no solid in-depth third-party sources.
