5.2 Requesting company
I sent you a fax, dated July 17, that requests the following information:
1. A list of USA or global catalyst manufacturers, including:
a. company names, adresses, telephone and fax numbers, and
b. product lines and sales records for each product.
2. Information on n-butene skeletal isomerization to iso-butylene.
I know that ABC Corporation, DEF Corporation, GHI Corporation (Skeletal
process), and JKL Corporation (BLISS process) are the global leaders
in this field. The last company may already be in the pilot plant
or demo plant stage.
I urgently need the above information. I appreciate your kind attention
to this matter and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

5.3 Requesting company information
Dear Mr. Jones,
UCL is a member of the PEP & CEH Program at ABC International. We
have ordered your multi-client report on Metallocenes. Mr. Smith (after
visiting UCL on May 21) suggested that we contact you regarding licensing
information. We would like to know which company is interested in
licensing their technology. Could you please let me know as soon as
possible? I appreciate your assistance.
company information 公司相關資料之提供 belongs
to requests for information. Requests
for information often include the following:
Mention of your organization's interest in the requested information
Requests for information should not be viewed as merely a means to
obtain information. Instead, information requests should be considered
as the first step in the identification of the mutual interests of
both organizations. For instance, how will the other organization
benefit from supplying you with information?
"We intend to explore other possible applications of these films,
particularly in the IC, electronics and packaging industries here
"We plan to file an IND for scopolamine T.D.D.S. with the Bureau of
Drugs (Taiwan's counterpart of the FDA). Please provide us with the
following documents and samples required by the Bureau."
"Our laboratory is currently developing a flow measurement test rig.
Our design consultant suggests the use of ABC valve products on some
of the mechanical components. The following is a list of items we
are interested in purchasing from your company."
By clarifying your organization's interests, you allow the reader
to make a correlation between the interests and goals of both organizations.
"Please send me introductory information as well as other relevant
publications that provide information on your strategies, methodologies,
achievements, and future objectives?"
"Since our goal closely resembles that of your organization, we would
like to develop a partner relationship with your Industrial Material
Exchange Service and in this way facilitate information exchange and
other possible collaborations."
