Sharepoint List and Document Libraries

I have a document library that has lookup fields referenced back to a list. In the list there are duplicate values in the "Company Name" column (see below).

Progresso
Turner Industries
Progresso
Hooch Industrial

The problem I am having is when I edit a document in the document library and get to the "Company Name" lookup field I am seeing "Progresso" twice.  I have searched high and low to find a solution that would filter out the duplicate values and show just one.

solve the duplicates in the company name column first or do not feed the value company name from the list and use another clean list instead

This is easily done if the column was in a list.  You simply use Infopath to edit the form.  Edit the drop down box properties and check "Show only entries with unique display names".  Why is the same functionality so hard to achieve in a document library edit form?

theruck thank you for your response but I feel that is a long way around to get to the solution.
