<company>

(OEM) A misleading term for a company which repackages equipment, such as computers, made by other companies. Unlike a value added reseller, an OEM does not necessarily add anything except their name to the product. In some cases though they may integrate components into complete systems. OEM arrangements are often made for marketing reasons.
