    word order

    XXX (company name) products are supplied to the conveyors of the leading European manufacturers of commercial vehicles and buses of Scania, Volvo, MAN, Mercedes, Iveco, Renault, DAF, Setra, Neoplan as original equipment (OE).

    Is it possible to change the word order in the sentence (if yes, would it be grammatically correct than?):

    XXX (company name) products are supplied as original equipment (OE) to the conveyors of Scania, Volvo, MAN, Mercedes, Iveco, Renault, DAF, Setra, Neoplanthe - leading European manufacturers of commercial vehicles and buses.

    I am not quite sure about the phrase "supply to the conveyors"... Are there any other equivalents in English?

    What do you mean by conveyors?

    Re: word order

    You wouldn't supply something to a conveyor. You would supply something to a manufacturer. (Originally I thought a conveyor must be a person.) Other than that, either way is fine.
