As of 3025, Matabushi Incorporated was already the most prosperous and technologically advanced corporation in the Draconis Combine, with first bid on any contracts and first civilian access to any new technology captured.
Matabushi Incorporated appeared in the first MechWarrior video game, though it should be noted that the canonicity of that game is uncertain. In the game, Duke Ishi Tahiro and Marquis Tanji Koetsu, both Chief Executive Officers, were in charge between 3024 and 3029, during Operation Inroad and its aftermath.
In the mid-3050s, the company expanded into the military market, building DropShips for the Draconis Combine Admiralty. Prior to that, Matabushi was best known on Pesht, where it produced computers and electronics for the civilian market. The Pesht office also served as a center for interstellar trade and finance.
During the long Jihad, the facility on Avon suffered capital and personnel losses of 35%, and the operating capacity of the factory had been reduced to 80% of their main production volume in 3079, but the plant was quickly restored to full production.
