Yes, with a little simple glue.

This is best done if you can identify which company the user belongs to
based on his login name. And you MUST NOT have overlapping login names
where the same login name is used by both companies.

The following example glue in perl sends all logins beginning with a-f
to one LDAP server, the rest to another. Completely untested, but should
give you an idea.

open(LOGIN1,"|/usr/local/squid/libexec/squid_ldap_auth -b dc=example,dc=com -R -f uid=%s XX.XX.XX.XX");
open(LOGIN2,"|/usr/local/squid/libexec/squid_ldap_auth -b dc=example,dc=net -R -f uid=%s YY.YY.YY.YY");
while(<>) {
  if (/^[a-f]/) {
    print LOGIN1 $_;
  } else if {
    print LOGIN2 $_;
