    thermostats of different types

    Today, ABC is headquartered in London. It is the oldest European designer and manufacturer of thermostats of different types, actuators and pipes for the automotive industry. Its daily production volume is 20 000 items.

    Can I rephrase the second sentence as follows:
    It is the oldest designer and manufacturer of thermostats of different types, actuators and pipes for the automotive industry in Europe?

    Are there any other ways to say 'thermostats of different types" (e.g.: the full range of thermostats)?

    Yes, you can restate that sentence the way you suggested.

    Yes, there are other ways to say it.

    I wouldn't use the "daily production" sentence unless you want to get more specific. Otherwise, it's pretty much meaningless.

    Re: rephrase a sentence

    Could you suggest your variant for the "daily production" sentence, please?

    Re: rephrase a sentence

    20,000 items flow off its production lines daily.

    Re: rephrase a sentence

    What about "20,000 items are daily produced by “ABC”?

    Re: thermostats of different types

    The daily production is 10,000 thermostats, 5,000 actuators, and 5,000 pipes.

    Re: thermostats of different types

    I would avoid "range of thermostats" because it makes me think of the temperature range of the thermostat.

    No, but you could say "are produced by ABC daily."
