Osman Heavy Industries

Osman Heavy Industries is a manufacturing and construction company that operates out of the Yamatai Star Empire, as well as a satelite location on planet Hope. Its primary products are vehicles, starships, and components/equipment for vehicles and starships.

About Osman Heavy Industries

Osman Heavy Industries was created in YE 40 by Leo Gerrick, a mechanically inclined local who decided that with the amount of mecha, starships and other construction work being done by the Sky Guard and the OSO that there was a decent amount of money to be made in providing those services.


Partway through YE 40 the OSO's local currency fluctuated violently in value, followed by the Frontier Service Corporation's transition into a ruthless economic syndicate. This prompted the company to follow deserters from the Skyguard out to a new home, and more importantly a new headquarters.

Osman Heavy Industries now has its main headquarters in the Yamatai Star Empire, as well as a branch headquarters located on Hope in the Pacifica system and Sanctum System, where it provides services to the Exodus Fleet and New Dusk Conclave.

Now it provides the Yamatai Star Empire and New Dusk Conclave with affordable and durable vehicles and weaponry and more recently, having sensed an untapped market, OHI provides affordable construction services, distinguishing itself by being able to operate its fleet of construction mecha in conditions that might deter or cause price increases for other companies.
