I found the supplier of the mirror adjust unit, Magna (it says on it, easy really). No idea at all if they supplied the whole unit or powerfold part but I don't think they did. I never really researched the powerfold bit, I was just looking to see if we could add memory function to the mirrors.
Presumably that would be Magna International Inc. of Canada. According to what's on the internet and on their web site, they own the 'Powerfold' trademark and supply mirrors, and many other things, to BMW and to many other motor manufacturers. Apparently they assemble the Mini Countryman for BMW in Austria. On the Mini website, Powerfolds are listed as an option.
Magna are a very big supplier to the automotive industry, branches all over the world. I hope you get a positive repsonse from them and well done for giving it a go. Which 'bit' did you write to as I suspect one of the European bits is most likely the supplier of the mirror motors.
They may own the powerfold trademark, and may well be the supplier of the 75/ZT ones, but there are other suppliers too.
