      They've all been integrated into CD pretty thoroughly. They all use a
      common Marketing, Production, Accounting, etc. staff but are trying to
      maintain the separate branding. MSR was, by far, their largest purchase
      an brought many people into the organization. There were so many high
      level people that it was some what hard to tell who brought who. They
      will be a little challenging for us to name. They have various people in
      the organization that concentrate on certain companies within the
      organization. They want them to appear as separate companies. They're
      actually all one company with multiple divisions producing multiple
      products. I'm not at all sure that is any clearer. Most of it a matter
      of semantics anyway.

      Thanks. I wasn't sure if they were actually "multiple companies"
      with CD as the parent company or simply strong brand identities
      under the umbrella of one company.

      As the "multiple companies" have web pages that fall under that of
      the main Cascade Designs web page, I thought it better not to assume
      too much (i.e. www.packtowl.com takes you to

      The "Multiple Companies" characteristic might be the line where we
      decide whether to bundle everything together under the parent (e.g.
      Cascade Designs link) or have seperate links for each entity (MSR,
      Platypus, PackTowl, Therm-A-Rest, etc.)
