History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Because of the bad reputation for safety of its chemical/biological warfare division, the firm is not well liked in many regions, even though all of SuSAG's dangerous manufacturing plants and experimental stations are located on remote, uninhabited planetoids.

  • Since sabotage of its plants is widespread, and its products extremely valuable, the firm maintains a large paramilitary security force, equipped to tech level 12-14 standards.
  • SuSAG was founded in 252 by Gustav Schunamann, financed from royalties received for his purification process for various psi-drugs, and using the shell of a bankrupt Sylean firm (hence the archaic AG in its name).
  • With the Psionics Suppressions in 800, psi drugs were declared illegal, all plants engaged in their manufacture within the Imperium closed, and all stocks confiscated and destroyed.
  • Fortunately for SuSAG, the firm had by then expanded into other operations, and although badly damaged, managed to survive and prosper.
  • SuSAG often engages in clandestine military ventures (using mercenary units) to protect their extra-Imperial interests.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

The New Era (Click Show to reveal)
The surviving Post-Collapse part of SuSAG has an equally spectacled past, with run-ins with Regency and Spinward Hinter governments over smuggling, production of contraband and illegal materials, and often boorish behavior by its management and private security services. In recent decades the company has been hurt by increasing competition; a failure to adjust to new technology and fund basic R&D has caused its profits and market share to slip, and its dominance has been eclipsed by rivals like General Mechanics and Sternmetal Horizons. The company maintains its headquarters at Glisten, and regional headquarters at Pretoria, Pikha and Neumann.
