The Kerr-McGinniss armor works developed a bad reputation almost from its founding during the Age of War six hundred years ago. The reactor shielding it produces is rumored to fail under stress in field conditions, but this allegation has never been conclusively proven. Sales dropped significantly as customers began using armor compounds (standard and Ferro-Fibrous) produced by other companies.
The CEO of Kerr-McGinniss in 3067 was Allicia Padier. She worked diligently to overcome her company's reputation for slipshod products by implementing a new PR campaign. In addition she constantly lobbied large defense contractors (in both the League and Lyran Commonwealth) to use Kerr-McGinniss armor. As a result, sales increased dramatically in the 3060's, but critics were still not satisfied with the quality of the company's products.
