=IF(OR(A1="3A Cryogenic FZE",A1="3C Metal Middle East FZE",A1="A ONE SWITCHGEAR INDUSTRIES LLC"),A1,"")


This formula is in cell B1 and filled down to cell B8. If you work with Office 365 or Excel for the web you can apply the FILTER function. An alternative with traditional Excel would be advanced filter.

@ajmal pottekattil yoousuf  I understood your question. You can get text before ", " Using textbefore formula and then use unique on that to remove duplicate value. 


Same you can find in below YouTube video.


If you further queries you please ask here or comment in the YouTube video. Hope this gives you a clarity.

This is similar to @TV1809 but uses arrays rather than helper cells.  Calling your column of data 'list',

= UNIQUE(TEXTBEFORE(list, ",",,,1))

returns the 2 distinct items
