    choose between two sentences

    1. In 1934 it launched production of TEXTAR brake pads, and just in 10 years the first deliveries of these products to the German car manufacturers took place
    2. “Textar” commenced to set production of brake pads in 1934. In 10 years there began the first deliveries of German automotive industry.

    Which of these two sentences is more preferable for you, as a native speaker?

    Thank you.

    Re: choise betwewn two sentences

    Neither is natural and both contain grammatical errors.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: choose between two sentences

    Note my corrections to your thread title.

    Actually, a better title would have been Textar brake pads.

    I like 2 better, with changes; TEXTAR commenced production of brake pads in 1934. In 10 years they began deliveries to the German automotive industry.

    Re: choose between two sentences

    What do you think about this variant:
    In 1934 TEXTAR started to produce brake pads, and just in 10 years it supplied the German automotive industry with them. TEXTAR, as the first manufacturer of friction materials, started delivering its brake pads to the conveyors and became a leading company in the market.

    Re: choose between two sentences

    Are you sure that you have your facts right, Ksenia? It seems odd that they should begin production in 1934, but not make the first deliveries for ten years.
