    one-stop-centre?

    Hello guys.. Can you please take a good look at the following sentence?


    "One-Stop-Centre for wide range of process equipment."


    1- Can you tell me the meaning of "one-stop-centre"?

    2- Also, I have the impression that they missed the article before the word range, am I right?

    3- One last thing: Can someone write that sentence in different words?

    It isn't a sentence. It doesn't have a verb. It appears to be an advertisement for some type of business.

    "One-Stop-Centre for wide range of process equipment."


    1- Can you tell me the meaning of "one-stop-centre"? It is a store where you can buy or rent everything you need for a specific purpose, such as athletic equipment, home repair equipment, photography supplies, cooking/kitchen supplies, etc.

    2- Also, I have the impression that they missed the article before the word range, am I right?
    It should probably read "One-Stop Centre for a wide range of processing equipment."
    3- One last thing: Can someone write that sentence in different words?
    I've only slightly modified the original text. It's not clear what type of processing equipment is being sold or rented.

    Re: one-stop-centre?

    They were talking about process equipment for oil, gas, petrochemicals, mineral processing, desalination and energy industries.

    I'm trying to get a job at a process equipment manufacturer. Their vocabulary will be a bit of a challenge to me, but I will try to keep up with them.
