Russian term or phrase:company X работает на базе
X работает с 2000 года на базе трех сахарных заводов. За несколько лет компания приобрела 2 молочных завода.
As far as I can tell, this just means that the company owned 3 sugar factories and it then went on to acquire 2 dairy factories. I am trying to find some way of reflecting the Russian more closely, but nothing is coming to mind. Obviously I want to avoid 'on the basis of'.
