    Is "with" correct to use

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask if "with" is correct to use in the following sentence:

    The company at most can provide 5 000 tons of raw material with 100 employees.

    The intended meaning is as follows: The company at most can provide 5 000 tons of raw material and to do that it should employ 100 persons.

    'Provide' is vague, do you mean process? produce?

    I guess the raw materials are to be processed.

    The company employs a staff of 100 and has a processing/production capacity of 5000 tons of raw materials.

    You could put 'With 100 employees,..' at the start of the sentence.
