You can set up a "user template" with the company name and any other default information you want.  Then when you create a new user, right-click on the template and copy it.

The new user will have your default information in it.

To make it easier to locate the template have the first character be an underscore "_".  This way the template will be at the top of the list.

Could you add users to AD with a script and Set-ADUser instead of through MMC? 

Or with PowerShell:

Or the simplest (maybe painstaking depending on your domain size) way to do it in the AD snap-in just select all the users, right click\properties, then any changes you make will effect all of the users selected.
