instrument manufacturers


Explanation:
The list of participants range from instrument manufacturers, through air and heat engineering companies, to interior design workshops.

Besteck can be translated to cutlery or instruments (see link below) but your context points more to the latter.

cutlery and/or instrument manufacturer


Explanation:
Within the above context it does not become clear if this in reference to the manufacturing of (medical) instruments, or refering to cutlery/"silverware".

You might be able to determine from the surrounding text which one it is, or if you could use both in your translation.
