Sorry searched for company without results, but
I tryed for people search
"geo clow"
and found 6 people (with phonenumbers) matching
(search in Both, e-mail and wite paper)
So if you REALLY interested you can try to call
this six people and ask them.

I fail to see what this has to do with Web Authoring...

Have you tried the search engines?

I don't know what web authoring is.  I've used several search engines trying to answer this question.  I posted this question in a newsgroup and then received emal from Experts Exchange saying E. E. had seen my unanswered question and that if I registered with E.E. one of your experts would research this question.  I do not understand your question saying you fail to see what my question has to do with web authoring.
This particular area of experts exchange is meant for the discussion of authoring content for the World Wide Web (Web Authoring). The experts here normally will answer questions related to that.

I don't know why E.E. sent you that email...

Anyway, I'll try Altavista for you:

A search on

+"brass patterns" +clow

doesn't return any results, which most likely means that there is no indexed information about this company and it's products available on the web (not indexed in Altavista -> most likely not available).

A search for

"brass patterns"

returns 5 documents:

Brass patterns seem to have something to do with die-casting of brass.. You might want to read a few of those documents to find out more.

(a search for

"brass pattern*"

returns 5 more documents, give it a try at Altavista, and one of those documents probably will tell you more about brass patterns)

It seems that there is no info available on the web about the firm though, sorry.
