Gorton, Kingsley, and Thorpe Enterprises began life as a law firm headquartered on Rasalhague. As the centuries passed, GKT purchased many other companies, including several BattleMech production lines. After the Ronin Wars, Gorton, Kingsley, and Thorpe jump started the FRR's economy by selling off most of their military production lines. Bergan Industries was one of the key beneficiaries of this process, acquiring the production facilities on New Oslo. This investment in smaller firms stimulated the economy of several planets and provided a huge public relations coup for GKT.[1]

Since taking control of the lion’s share of the Free Rasalhague Republic, Clan Ghost Bear has done their utmost to integrate as much as possible with the occupied populace. Although such factories as Gorton, Kingsley and Thorpe on Satalice might seem of dubious value to the Clan’s touman, Clan Ghost Bear continues to train the workers here and hope to be able to have them trained to manufacture up to Clan standards soon. Until then, they continue to accept modest numbers of the factory’s original products for use as training ‘Mechs and to be issued to the lowest of garrison and solahma troops.

As GKT has connections and partnerships with so many civilian manufacturing concerns, the Ghost Bear Merchant Caste has integrated Gorton, Kingsley, and Thorpe employees and executives to better tie into the culture of the former Rasalhague Republic.[1]

During the Jihad, neither the Rasalhague or Satalice facilities lost any personnel. Both facilities were operating at three-quarters of their maximum output in 3079.[2]
