Well, product and user could both be internal. The product could be the
company's telephone system and the user could be the techs who maintain
it.

Manufacturer, okay, I can see your point here but I'd not get hung up on
it. You might be a tech writer for a staffing agency or a networking
consultancy that does not make anything but sells services.

Cheers.

"Technical Communicators represent the interface between product and
user. Professional Technical Communicators are the users' advocates.
They work for the manufacturers and, at the same, time try to meet the
users' needs for usable information."

Not every tech writer works with a commercial product.
Not every tech writer works for a manufacturer.
