Di Tron Heavy Industries

Founded in 2203, Di Tron Heavy Industries was a major Japan-based corporation. Operating during the Terran Hegemony and, later, the Star League, its primary area of interest was construction.


The company's headquarters were located in Tokyo, Japan on Terra, with regional offices on New Earth, Sirius and Zebebelgenubi. Despite its origins, the company had a very rocky relationship with the Draconis Combine, stemming from a dispute between the Toshimotos and Kuritas. Who started the disagreement is unknown, but it is believed one had offended the other sometime in the twenty-third century.[1]

During the Hegemony, Di Tron had hold of a large share of the construction market, with subsidiaries focused on urban and military construction. With the creation of the Star League, the company diversified, with Di Tron Shipbuilders pumping out quality craft from its ten shipyards. It was responsible for the creation of the Titan and Dictator DropShips, and the refurbishment of the Aegis WarShip.[1]

Unfortunately, Di Tron would become a casualty during the fall of the Star League. Only one shipyard, located in the Lyran Commonwealth, survived to become part of Ioto Industries.[1]


During the company's lifetime, it was maintained by the Toshimoto family of Terra. Their dispute with the Kuritas meant whatever business dealings they had with them were often short and dirty.[1]


The only known manufacturing center were the shipyards in orbit of Alarion, which became part of Ioto Industries when the rest of the company was destroyed.[1]
