    The noun "ware"

    I'd be grateful for quick help with the following simple question:

    Does the noun "ware" have the plural form "wares", or is it uncountable?
    The context is: 'xxx is an enterprise for production of reinforced concrete ware(s)'. It is important to emphasise that they make many different types of products.

    Thank you in advance.
    Regards,

    Tee Kay

    As part of a compound noun, it's non-count; e.g., hardware, chinaware, and as a single noun, it's countable;e.g., They're selling their wares at the market.
