Manufacturing
English term or phrase: pure players
Hello Proz Community!

Today I am translating a company's description. In one of the descriptive sections, there is a classification of the company's main competitors:

"the profile of our competitors is the following: from local or family companies to international ones, from pure players to others fully integrated".

Does "pure" mean here "aimed at an only business/manufacturing stage (vs. integrated= comprising all business/manufacturing stages)? In that case, is such a term in Spanish as "empresa/actor pura/o"??

Thanks in advance.

or, depending on the context, "una empresa con una sóla línea de productos"

Pure play is a term that refers to business activities of a company. If a company is devoted to one line of business, and if success of that company depends on success of a single product, it is said that company is a pure player.
