Explanation:
I have a few suggestions:

Type of Business: Unternehmensart

End User: Endnutzer is OK for IT, otherwise Endverbraucher

Consultant: Berater

Fabricator: You need to distinguish between fabricator and manufacturer.
I think that in this case what is meant by fabricator might be something like Unternehmer and manufacturer would be Hersteller.

Design/Construction: Design is often Planung.
Construction probably covers both building and what the trade calls "civil and transportation"; German companies undertaking both usually say Hoch- und Tiefbau.
So, it would be "Planung/Hoch- und(/oder) Tiefbau

OEM/Manufacturer: OEM/Hersteller

Distributor/Reseller: I suggest Generalvertreter/Wiederverkäufer

diff. Fabricator/Manufacturer: sonstiger Unternehmer/Hersteller

Good luck! I shall be particularly interested to see the final choice for "compounder"!
