If you're looking for more balletic companies that don't do pointe work, that's a little more difficult to find. Introdans, in the Netherlands, doesn't seem to do pointe work, but that's just what I got from looking at their website. Same with Batsheva Dance Company. I'd suggest looking around company websites, or checking out performance venues like the Joyce/BAM/Sadler Wells for possibilities.
Good Luck! It's an interesting question, sorry I couldn't help more.

"If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft
And of thy meager store
Two loaves alone to thee are left
Sell one, and with thy dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul."
~ Saadi (1184-?1283), Persian poet
