Boris Becker is a subsidiary of Volkl, which we all know makes skis. Prince also makes squash and badminton racquets, as well as racquetball goods (as Ektelon).

Did someone say Luxilon? Their main product isn't tennis at all, they manufacture thick metallic-based strings for industrial purposes, which they had been doing for a long time before they came out with any tennis product.

Actually Voelkl Tennis is now a subsidiary of Boris Becker Sports GmbH.
http://voelkl.twoday.net/

"In May 2007, Boris Becker and his partner Hans-Dieter Cleven founded a new company: the BORIS BECKER SPORTS GmbH, which therefore replaces Völkl Tennis GmbH. This however does NOT mean that the brand VÖLKL TENNIS will disappear in the near future. On the contrary, Völkl Tennis will continue to develop new tennis racquets in the future. The company name has changed, but the brand name remains the same."

Boris Becker and Hans-Dieter Cleven have a licensing agreement with the owners of Voelkl Ski (the Jarden Corporation) to use the Voelkl name on tennis products.

Squash and Badminton is the same sort of thing as tennis anyway. (Like tennis involves rackets) No surprise racket manufacturers make rackets for those sports to.

Nope, Vantage makes a lot of squash stuff and soon badminton stuff. In fact, half of their website is dedicated to squash.

Anirut, Kneissl is more a Ski-brand then a tennis, they make real quality ski products. (Austrian brand)

Prince does stuff for racquetball, but its under the name "Ektelon" instead of Prince. Ektelon has the o3 technology, but i don't think they use speedport.

Ektelon o3 Black:

Probably Pro Supex.

They also make squash racquets, as well as beach "tennis" paddles and and some other game paddles.

I believe it's Gamma that makes only tennis-related products.
Keep in mind strings do not count, as tennis strings are practically the same strings used for racquetball and squash.
As for Prince, they have Prince Squash, as well as Ektelon Racquetball.
And Ektelon will be incorporating SpeedPort Technology this year.
