That list is admittedly incomplete, because I only list those foundries that have (to my knowledge) cast bells far carillons or chimes.  I would classify Otto Buer as a carillon builder, in the same category as Verdin of America, Clock-O-Matic of Belgium, etc.  They are known to have installed bells cast by Bachert (Karlsruhe) and Perner (Passau), and might well have installed bells cast by P&F and/or Eijsbouts (now merged).
This installation clearly qualifies as a non-traditional carillon, and will be the 10th such instrument in the British Isles in my database.
