I searched the forums but couldn't find anything, hope this isn't a repeat post.

I am trying to figure out what reel manufacturers are "sister companies." For example:

Abu Garcia, Penn, Mitchell, Shakespeare, Pflueger, Johnson, and Berkeley are sister companies. 

Zebco and Quantum are sister companies.

Do Lew's, Shimano, Okuma, Diawa, Duckett have other reel brands considered sister companies? Are there other reel mfg's for the above that I missed?

I realize that most of these companies also make rods and other equipment, but I am primarily concerned with reels at the moment.

If this topic has been discussed before, can you please link me to the thread?

Thanks in advance

I did not know that. 


But to clarify the reason for my question (which I omitted because of the rules) is that I have a reel service business.  I am trying to apply to become a certified repair center with the various reel companies.  One company stated that becoming a center for them, makes me a repair center for their sister companies as well.  So I am trying to group them and make sure I am not double applying, or not applying to one at all.
