No problem.

Also, the company appears to have had offices in NY, but manufactured in NJ. Their current/modern HQ is in Plainfield.

The easiest way is to go via the "add categories" page.

This bridge has a builder's plate as Harris Structural Steel Co Inc, New York. In the builders category there is only seemingly same company but in Plainfield, NJ.

Do you think a new builder is needed, or go with the NJ company, and they are probably related?

Also, can someone give me clear, step by step instructions on copying the builder to a particular bridge page, so it is incorporated into the total number of bridges for the company, and a new company is not created. I know it has been explained already but I dint get it.

Thanks.
