I want to be able to display my company on Google Maps. I have a places page set up. If you search for it Google will show my business with a red marker which links to my places page.

I want it to display on the map all the time. Like the TM Lewin Shop in the example below.

enter image description here

Map Link

How do I get it to do that. What does Google use to decide that.

There are 3 business at our address. One of the companies is displayed on the map. Would that stop us displaying?

I think your question at the end may be the problem. Google say

There shouldn't be more than one listing per physical location. Even if you're a doctor who is a cardiologist and a chiropractor or a service that covers multiple towns, you shouldn't have two listings. Instead, use the description of your business or categories to explain the different services your business offers.

You need to be in Google Places. I'm not sure how they handle three businesses. I would guess that they choose the one most relevant to a search query.
