    Johnson& Johnson manufactures products for babies who are leaders in that industry.

    Johnson& Johnson manufactures products for babies who are leaders in that industry.

    I think it will be ambiguous to write 'who are..' just after the word 'babies'. Then what is the better way of writing it.

    Thanks.

    If you want to keep most of your text, you can write Johnson & Johnson, who are leaders in their industry, manufacture products for babies. I believe this is correct BrE usage. Companies are singular in AmE, so we'd write Johnson & Johnson, which is a leader in its industry, manufactures products for babies.

    A shorter AmE version: Johnson & Johnson, a leader in its industry, manufactures products for babies.
