A great resource for locating companies that manufacture any type of product as well as parts, components, raw materials, and more is ThomasNet: http://www.thomasnet.com/
You can search for the product or browse within categories. ThomasNet includes links to company websites, product catalogs, and datasheets. CAD drawings are available for some products.
The Mechanical Engineering - Vendor Data guide lists some additional resources for finding manufacturers.
