SuSAG, LIC (Schunamann und Sohn AG, LIC)

SuSAG engages in a wide range of chemical, pharmaceutical, and gene engineering activities.  SuSAG is the primary manufacturer of anagathics for the Imperium, and maintains psionic drug manufacturing plants in client states outside Imperial borders.

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).  In 800, psi drugs were declared illegal, all plants engaged in their manufacture within the Imperium closed, and all stocks were confiscated and destroyed.  Fortunately for SuSAG, the firm had by then expanded into other operations; although badly damaged, it managed to survive and prosper.  SuSAG often engages in clandestine military ventures (using mercenary units) to protect their extra-Imperial interests.

Stock Ownership: Schunamann family, 52 percent; Imperial family, 2.5 percent; Hortalez et Cie, 9 percent; other corporations, 23.5 percent; private ownership, 7 percent; other, 6 percent.
