Gienah Automotive has been in business in the Lyran Commonwealth since just before the Second Succession War.[4] The company principally focuses on producing civilian ground vehicles, including specialty models used for specific tasks.

The company has been known to do business and market its wares across the border as the Free Worlds League is one of the company's major customers. In 2864, then CEO of Gienah Automotive, Duke Solia Zdenekova, was contacted by FWL's corporate owner, Earl Jarv Kefalcyk. The Earl offered a productive proposal to merge the abilities of his shipping company, DuraPaq Solutions, with Gienah's manufacturing abilities. Though the talks took until late twenty-ninth century, Gienah Automotive and DuraPaq jointly created a venture to produce a new line of cargo hauling vehicles: Land Trains.[5]

By the late thirty-first century, competition from Skye based Avanti Automotive had begun to challenge Gienah's market share.

By 3067, the corporation had three factories on Gienah, however only one-third of its sales came from the Gienah Combat Vehicles Division.[3] Its relationship to Gienah BattleMechs Ltd. is unknown.

After the Jihad Gienah launched a stock sale to allow them to re-expand back into the military market, but the sale returns didn't meet Gienah's goal, leaving the company out of the defense industry by 3085.[6]
