I contact you to react to the Wikipedia article about Quintana Roo ( Company ) USA https://en.wikipedia.org wiki Quintana_roo
who claims to have created the first Triathlon wetsuit in 1987; well that’s not true!
I am Xavier MERIAN creator of the brand AQUAMAN France specialized in Triathlon wetsuits production since 1984 and inventor of the first one .
I am writing to restore the Truth.
Here is the compelling evidence to the contrary
We published an advertizing in January 1986 (at that date the Quintanaroo company did not even exist) in the French Triathlete Magazine
it can be consulted directly today to : Triathlete magazine 2 Rue de la Justice 93213 SAINT DENIS LA PLAINE- FRANCE www.triathlete.fr firstname.lastname@example.org
People and ProductsEdit
Is this Wikiproject also about people who have connections to companies and products or is it exclusively about companies? If it is just about companies, it should be mentioned in the "scope" section that people and products aren't included in it or at least say somewhere that it is exclusively about companies. As there currently is a lot of articles related to both people and products in the various article lists. So, I don't think people are getting that its a project exclusively for companies if it is. --Adamant1 (talk) 23:03, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Hi! How are you? I recently came across BATX. What are your thoughts on such an article? To me, it's just an article that has a short blurb on each of the companies (with sources about them). No indication "BATX" is used in general or professional speech, nor any other indication why this neologism is notable. Do we need such a page? Maybe a redirect if anything...

Correction at Wheely articleEdit
Hello! My name is Elena and I work for Wheely. I've made an account to propose updates to the company's page, which I'll post at Talk:Wheely for editor review. For my first request, I've proposed updated wording to replace a poorly written sentence, "Further expansion is scheduled on summer 2019, this time the company launches in Paris." Could an editor here at WikiProject Companies help? Elena Wheely (talk) 10:00, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
How Much Criticism Is Too Much?Edit
I did a rewrite on Shoney's and someone has added a bunch of information back to the article about a lawsuit. I am wondering how much criticism such as lawsuits is acceptable for company articles? The text is many paragraphs long about a single lawsuit. Maybe it is too much and maybe it is too little. I am not as experienced as some people here so would like some feedback prior to editing the article again. --Titanchowder (talk) 03:23, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
- Hi, Titanchowder, I copied this over to the talk page for Shoney's as that is the location where it should be discussed. I will say to check WP:CSECTION and WP:WEIGHT as these are the two I believe would best govern the discussion. --CNMall41 (talk) 23:50, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Seeking Consensus re: Edit Request on GM Defense PageEdit
I am submitting this question to the project that governs the GM Defense page at the suggestion of COI editor Spintendo following an edit request we submitted to its Talk page on Feb. 14, 2020. Our goal is to update the page with accurate information regarding the current incarnation of the company (now named GM Defense LLC) and also help address the flags on the page regarding verification, etc.
Because our revised copy incorporated a citation in the lead – which as Spintendo pointed out, does not follow MOS:CITELEAD – we were asked to gain consensus on that suggested change first before proceeding with a specific edit request.
For reference, below is the proposed lead that would replace the existing lead on the page:
If helpful for discussion, the full text of our edit request is below. Please let me know if it’s recommended we pursue an alternate route to seek consensus, such as an RfC. Thank you for your time and consideration! Jon Gray (talk) 14:47, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
GM Defense is a division of General Motors providing military products.
GM Defense is the military product division of General Motors focusing on the defense industry needs with hydrogen fuel cell and other advanced mobility technologies. GM Defense projects include SURUS (Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure) an autonomous modular platform joint project with the United States Army.
ZH2 are modified Chevrolet medium and full size pickups modified for military needs. The ZH2, fitted with a hydrogen fuel cell and electric drive, has a stealthy drive system which produces a very low smoke, noise, odor and thermal signature. This allows soldiers to conduct silent watch and silent mobility missions on the battlefield.
General Motors, the Office of Naval Research and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory are cooperating to incorporate automotive hydrogen fuel cell systems into the next generation of Navy unmanned undersea vehicles, or UUVs. Hydrogen fuel cell technology could augment ships and subs on patrol.
GM Defense LLC develops solutions leveraging emerging technologies such as lithium-ion batteries and hydrogen fuel cell systems for land and underwater vehicles  and both stationary and mobile power generation.
The company also develops telematics and cybersecurity systems, as well as vehicle platforms and propulsion systems based on diesel  and gasoline-powered engines and hybrid powertrains.
GM Defense LLC vehicle projects include the Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV), the Chevrolet ZH2 hydrogen fuel cell vehicle developed and tested with the US Army,  and SURUS (Silent Utility Rover Universal Superstructure), an autonomous modular platform concept.
In August 2019, GM Defense LLC received a $1 million-dollar contract from the United States Army to develop two Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV) prototypes. GM Defense’s ISV is based on the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 architecture, which leverages 70 percent commercial off-the-shelf components. 
Like the ISV, the ZH2 was also based on the mid-size Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. The ZH2, fitted with a hydrogen fuel cell and electric drive, produces no toxic emissions and has a minimal noise or thermal signature, enabling nearly silent watch and silent mobility missions on the battlefield. 
The company is also working with the Office of Naval Research and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory to incorporate automotive hydrogen fuel cell systems into the next generation of Navy unmanned undersea vehicles, or UUVs. Hydrogen fuel cell technology could augment ships and subs on patrol.  
The original GM Defense (founded in 1950) organization and acquired by General Dynamics in 2003 and became part of the General Dynamics Land Systems division.
And replacing with this updated information:
General Motors founded a defense business named General Motors Defense in 1950, developing a series of military vehicles over five decades before selling the operation to General Dynamics in 2003, where it became part of the General Dynamics Land Systems division. 
With the sale to General Dynamics, only GM Defense’s Stryker product lines are still in production.

Proposed Syncsort update at Pitney BowesEdit
Hello! I've proposed updating language related to Syncsort within the Pitney Bowes article at Talk:Pitney_Bowes#Syncsort. The current text is factually accurate but does not confirm the acquisition's completion and uses less than ideal sourcing. I'm submitting this request on behalf of Pitney Bowes, and I'm seeking assistance from editors to review this request and update the article on my behalf. Might someone watching this page be willing to help?
Hello. I work for Executive Writing, and as part of my consultancy, I work with United Talent Agency. I am hoping someone will be willing to take a look at the N.S. Bienstock page to help determine if it should be merged to direct readers to the United Talent Agency page. United Talent Agency’s acquisition of N.S. Bienstock was widely reported in the press when it occurred in early 2014. This acquisition is already referenced and sourced on the United Talent Agency page. You can see coverage of the initial acquisition here. THE N.S. Bienstock brand has since retired and is known now as UTA News & Broadcasting. This, too, is noted on the UTA page. Additionally, the N.S. Bienstock brand retirement can be documented by the fact that the entity no longer has an independent website. I believe the N.S. Bienstock page should be merged and simply refer readers to the United Talent Agency page, which already reflects the retirement of the NSB/shift to UTA News & Broadcast, but am looking for guidance from editors. I believe I've disclosed my conflict of interest appropriately. Thank you in advance for your help. EWChristine (talk) 18:19, 30 March 2020 (UTC)EW Christine
