Corean Enterprises was a multinational BattleMech manufacturer with sites in the Federated Suns and Free Worlds League—the latter being considered an independent subsidiary named Corean Enterprises MacAdams-Suharno.[2]

Overview[edit]

Once the third largest non–Terran Hegemony based military contractor in the Star League, the Succession Wars resulted in the loss of all but two facilities: the headquarters on New Avalon and a satellite facility on Stewart. Corean's multinational status caused no end of headaches as cash profits could not be directly transferred between branches, and both the Federated Suns and FWL governments enforced strict controls to prevent advanced and exclusive technology developed in their realms leaking to the other House.[2]

The Corean plant at Jeratha on the Federated Suns capital of New Avalon is one of the few surviving completely automated BattleMech factories in the Inner Sphere, capable of churning out 130 brand-new Valkyries per year. The plant's proximity to the New Avalon Institute of Science has helped ensure its continued maintenance[3] and led to a healthy relationship between them. NAIS developed upgrades and refits, such as fixing the Centurion's troublesome autocannon mount, breathed new life into numerous Corean designs, while Corean 'Mechs have been supplied to serve as testbeds for various technology developments discovered in NAIS labs.

Corean has been known to provide 'Mech rebuilding services to their customers.[4]
