    This is a factory that makes soap.

    Hello



    This is a factory that makes soap.
    Does this sentence have any errors? Can I say "a soap factory" instead of "a factory that makes soap"?

    Thank you.

    The sentence is OK. Yes, you can say: This is a soap factory/an autmatic soap factory. Similary, This is a sugar factory/garments factory/bycycle factory.

    Though a factory that makes soap could make other things too.
