I have been requested to use areg in my regression due to large dummy variable (15 industry codes in a sample of 1100 firms) set…

The requestor is being silly. What's wrong with having 15 additional coefficients in a sample of 1100? The areg command is estimating those same coefficients; it is just not displaying them.

Using a table-producing routine such as built-in -estimates table-, you can produce output not showing the dummy coefficients with drop() or keep(). Same goes for user-written routines like Ben Jann's -estout- on SSC. Use -regress- and show the requestor the edited output.
