English translation:Betriebs- und ??-Stoffe
Explanation:
This is just a guess - if it's a typo they would have had to type 4 letters incorrectly. I think it might be
B- u. U-Stoffe, as in (maybe) Betriebs- und Untersuchungsstoffe- or something else related to maintenance that begins with a U)
which could be production and testing supplies/materials or something of that nature.

I agree with the other two suggestions and cannot think of another choice.

Not typos


Explanation:
I agree with Beth - it's unlikely that there would be several wrong letters in just one short word.

I also agree that the B probably stands for Betriebs-

My contribution:

I think the U might stand for Umweltschutz

Good luck!!
