Who owns/makes what

I am working on an project on the current world of bicycle manufacture. I am asking if anyone knows who owns (some or all of) what. Like Lebron James owns Cannondale. Or Selle Royale owning Brooks....Anything interesting and relevant.
And which factories in Taiwan, China and Vietnam produce which frames. Big companies like Giant, Meridia, Hodaka, Ideal, Falcon Power...stuff like that.
This information is usually very tightly controlled and nearly impossible to find without some connections.
Try and keep it current and as accurate as possible. (references would be great if possible)
This is my first post on BF (sowie) but I assure you I have been reading it for years.
Thanks

Wait a minute. So you want US to do your homework for you?? (shame shame shame!!)

If you have been reading this for years (I'm hoping you meant BF not CF) then you should have the answer to which factories produce which frames. It's been discussed many times over.

I call shenanigans. You haven't read us for years.

That's what I'm talkin' about....but I can't find anything to back that one up. In fact the Beatrice brand has mostly gone extinct and sold off.

Thanks Anyway

OP here.
Oh believe me I have been doing my homework. I have pages and pages of notes and feel like I have sucked every last English speaking tidbit off of the web.
But this is a massive undertaking. Like everything from that part of the world it seems half intermingled and half secret. It seems like I am S.O.L. unless I actually head over to Taiwan and make friends with factory employees.
Also distributors.....anyone know any odd house brands of QBP, J&B, SBS,G. Joannou etc.
Please please?

QBP owns Surley, Salsa, and Civia (I think)
J&B may not own them, but they are the distributors of Sun
SBS owns Redline
The same parent (which one?) owns SE Racing, Fuji, and now Breezer
Pacific has a bunch of brands, including Schwinn, GT, Mongoose

Fixed that for you.

He doesn't own the whole company.
