Description:

J.B. BattleMechs was founded in 3053 by Jillianne Suliben, the daughter of a wealthy Tamar entrepreneur killed during the Clan invasion. Ms. Suliben started her company after purchasing the plans and molds for the venerable Chameleon training 'Mech design from Defiance of Hesperus. Using extensive connections and financial support from the defense-obsessed FedCom government, she refurbished an ancient manufacturing plant at Godenboro on Storfors into a BattleMech factory and produced her first run of new Chameleons in early 3056, followed soon by the first runs of the new Dragon Fire heavy 'Mech design.

In the early 3060s, at the request of then-Archon Katherine Steiner-Davion, J.B. BattleMechs supported a similar refurbishing effort for the endangered Red Devil Industries plant on Pandora. In exchange for loan guarantees and government orders, as well as a joint license for any new BattleMech designs spawned by the effort, J.B. BattleMechs carried out the request, but the investment of time and resources soon proved disastrous when Clan Jade Falcon seized Pandora within months after the renovations were complete.

The fall of Pandora, though a military disaster, flooded J.B. BattleMechs with new orders originally slated for Red Devil Industries. Landgrave Suliben has since initiated a massive hiring spree to boost her company's manpower and bring up production to meet the demands caused by the attrition of the Falcon Incursion and the recent civil war.
