Rice does have a subscription to IBIS World but if it is company information you need (especially for the companies you mentioned) I would use the sources mentioned below.
IBIS is great for industry data but their company reports are not as complete as you might like. We have a couple of company databases that will be helpful. You can search them by company name or by SIC Code (industry codes) or NAICS Code (industry codes) and get companies that are within the same industry. Sometimes the codes used for companies in the same industry are not the same. Not sure why this happens.
I would use one of the following databases if you want company reports: Hoover's or Mergent Online. Each of these databases will also have an industry function.
