Manufacturing Plant(s)Loxley

Kong Interstellar Corporation was a defense manufacturer dating back to the Star League era.


During the Star League era, Kong Interstellar was a major defense contractor to the Star League Defense Force,[2] with manufacturing plants on at least two worlds: Connaught[1] and Loxley.[2] The Loxley facilities didn't survive the Succession Wars. By the thirty-first century, Connaught was the primary factory world for Kong Interstellar. The Connaught factory complex was severely damaged during the Succession Wars, losing its manufacturing abilities. It soldiered on as a repair and parts fabrication facility. These repair kits kept the company afloat, but were limited to the products Kong produced.[1] Only after the Clan Invasion did Kong begin to rebuild its manufacturing abilities and resume production of some of its products.[3]

In 3065, Kong Interstellar opened a new Ostsol production line in Ranelagh (Connaught's capital) that specialized in the 7M variant.[1]

The Connaught plant lost a quarter of its staff during the Jihad, but by 3079 was operating at 90% of its full output.[4]
