affiliated company


Explanation:
Woywode, Accounting and Tax Dictionary, lists "affiliated company". This is also supported by Zahn, Bank- und Börsenwesen.
Zahn also lists "associated (or related" company, and Schäfer, Hyperbook Wirtschaftsenglisch, lists

Beteiligungsgesellschaft f
(com) associated company
(ie, often restricted to an interest of not more than 50%)
(Fin) = Kapitalbeteiligungsgesellschaft, qv
Kapitalbeteiligungsgesellschaft f
(Fin) equity investment company
(ie, Ziel: Zuführung von Eigenkapital an mittelständische, nicht emissionsfähige Unternehmen, deren Eigenkapitaldecke zu kurz ist und die nicht über bankmäßige Sicherheiten verfügen; invests its funds in enterprises unable to issue securities and lacking adequate collateral; syn, Holding, Beteiligungsgesellschaft, Unternehmensbeteiligungsgesellschaft, Finanzierungsgesellschaft)

Zahn also lists "participation company" (auf den Erwerb von Beteiligungen spezialisiertes Unternehmen)

See what fits best into your context.

associated service companies


Explanation:
that's how I understand it, could be wrong.

participiation


Explanation:
'Participation' is the rendering I would use for 'Beteiligung'. It describes a company in which a controlling stake is acquired, and has a friendlier and more positive ring to it than does 'subsidiary' (Tochtergesellschaft), which as far as I can tell, is the same thing.
