This is a listing of domestic match manufacturers mainly from the late 1800s to the present. Rather than filling up the list with obscure manufacturers whose products the great majority of collectors are never going to run across, presented here are those they will encounter, for the most part. For more detailed descriptions of these companies, see "The American Match Industry: A Biograph".
 
[Note: some "companies" later became "corporations"]
[Note2: A few of these, such as Southern Match Corp., are 'ify' as actual manufacturers due to lack of info]
[Note3: There is some company ovverlapping on the Era divisions]
