    in the making

    The original sentenve is:
    XXX (company's name)has played a decisive role in shaping the technical development of trailer couplings.

    But I need to rephrase it using "in the making" (in the process of developing or growing, being made). Would it be as follows:
    In the company's making, it has been specializing in technical development of trailer couplings?

    Thank you.

    Re: in the making

    No. In the making (of) will describe what the company does, not what is happening to the company.

    Is this homework?

    Re: in the making

    No, this is not homework.

    Are there any other ways to say "in the process of company development" then?
