Swedish term or phrase: bruk
Hello

I have too many segments to reproduce here with the word bruk, which according to Wiki means

Bruk avser verksamheter som utvinner och/eller förädlar råvaror. Begreppet bruk menar vanligen inte bara byggnaden där förädlingen ser utan även de byggnader och funktioner som ligger omkring, inklusive boningshus. Bruk menar vanligast järnbruk, glasbruk eller pappersbruk eller en industrianläggning som dominerat en ort, men begreppet återfinns också som ett efterled för andra typer av rörelser som jordbruk, skogsbruk, krutbruk etcetera.

Bruken kom ofta att utgöra basen för en expanderade bebyggelse där sedan ortens och invånarnas förutsättningar var hårt kopplade till bruket. I dessa brukssamhällen utvecklades sedan ofta en speciell bruksmentalitet.

My problem is that this word keeps coming up in different contexts referring to paper mills, foundries (various metals) etc. It also comes up in sentences about workers living conditions (not clear if I say that workers lived in the foundry)

Does anyone happen to have a good all scenarios translation for" bruk" please?
