Overview[edit]

This Lopez-based corporation is notable for manfacturing power plants in both the Free Worlds League and the Taurian Concordat. The corporate branch on Lopez is dedicated to the manufacture of weapons.

Notable Achievements[edit]

In the 3050s, Magna Metals corporation was noted for development of both the extended range and pulse version of laser weaponry. It also went on to develop the Extended Range PPC.

The company's Taurian operations are unusual. In contrary to the operational procedures of many other plants, the Concordat produces its massive DropShip engines at one plant and distributes them to several shipyards for assembly, rather than building an assembly plant at the same site where the drives are built.

In Mid-3060s after its new CEO took over the company, the company opened other Drive-manufacturing plants on Regulus and Stewart.[1]

During the Jihad the Taurus plant didn't lose any personnel to the Word of Blake and Federated Suns assaults. In 3079 the plant was operating at 5% below its maximum output.[2]

Leadership[edit]

As of 3065, the Magna Metals Inc. Chief Executive Officer is a former FWL MechWarrior, Liz Shirman.[1]
