Spanish term or phrase: ...industrias de acabados textiles y colectividades
Here is the whole sentence:

"Fabricación y comercio de maquinaria, productos y accesorios para lavanderías de ropa, industrias de acabados textiles y colectividades."


I know they make and sell machinery and products for laundering clothes... but how would you guys and gals translate that latter part?

Thanks:

Hi Heather,

(Thanks Bar for your help too)

I've gone for a combination of "mass produced textile finishings"... which I think from further context sums it up in as short a way as possible. Funny how Some phrases are so instantly "understandable" yet difficult to express in your own language, eh?
