Subject:Turn-key supplier instead of OEM From:"E,T, Hull" <ethull -at- WORLDACCESS -dot- NL> Date:Wed, 28 May 1997 22:41:36 +0200

Again, I would like to ask the "native-speakers" if "turn-key supplier"
fits the situation of: a machine builder who designs, constructs, installs
and maintains the machines used to produce an end product such as candy

Are there any other names used in the U.S., Canada or England which might
