Overview[edit]

In 3025, Aldis Industries was the Inner Sphere's largest independent weapons producer. Their Terran headquarters was protected by Comstar's neutrality. At the fall of the Star League Aldis was a comparatively small firm. Since that time, Aldis has become one of the largest manufacturers of heavy tanks. They also owned some 'Mech production lines in Liverpool and Tokyo was home of some aerospace fighter production lines.[1]

During the Jihad, the Betelgeuse factory lost 18% of their capital and personnel. By 3079 they had reached their full production volume of 100% in 3079.[2] Fortunately the home office on Terra has always allowed the various subsidiary firms a great deal of leeway, so Aldis' Betergeuse factory has become one of the largest suppliers of weapons for the Capellan Confederation's Home Guard units. The heavy tanks they produce can be found across the Confederation.[3]

Leadership[edit]

In 3025 the company's CEO is Paula Cariton.[1]

The Capellan Division was headed by Peter Abrahamson in 3067. His family has led the firm for nearly a century.[3]

Manufacturing[edit]

Aldis Industries has manufacturing centers on the following planets:
