Nota de aplicación

Businesses, establishments, or other administrative organizations that oversee the action or process of making goods, particularly such establishments in operation after the Industrial Revolution of the mid-19th century, often employing at least some mechanical production methods rather than creating strictly handmade items. Modern factories organize their operations to meet the need for production on a large scale, usually with power-driven machinery. For earlier organizations that created handmade works, use "manufactories."
