Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Schunamann und Sohn, AG LIC (SuSAG, LIC), engages in a wide range of chemical, pharmaceutical, and geneering activity. SuSAG is the primary manufacturer of anagathics for the Imperium and maintains psi drug manufacturing plants in certain client states outside Imperial borders.
Because of the bad reputation for safety in 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 projects extremely valuable, the firm maintains a large paramilitary security force, equipped to tech level 12-14 standards.
It has a wide variety of share-holdings in other companys, many through multi-level sub-sidiary companies, which obfuscates any direct connection to SuSAG; because of it's aforementioned reputation.
SuSAG was founded in 252 by Gustav Schunamann, financed from royalties received for his purification process for various psionic 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.
