Though frequently denounced for poor production standards and quality control – almost since its inception during the Age of War over 600 years ago - Kerr-McGuiness is one of the Free Worlds League’s largest armor manufacturers, with its Shenville plant on Umka supplying almost all ‘Mech and vehicle manufacturers in the League. Critics have singled out the company’s reactor shielding, and though there no conclusive proof exists of faults in the manufacturing process – despite a formal investigation being launched in the mid 3020’s by the Ministry of Energy - sales have dwindled significantly in favor of armor composites (standard and ferro-fibrous) and CASE systems.
CEO Allicia Padier has worked diligently to overcome Kerr-McGuiness’ poor reputation, calling on all the skills she developed at SynoCon to shape public perception of her brand. Her constant courting of major Free Worlds defense industries (and many abroad, such as the Lyran company Thar-Hes) led to a significant upswing in sales revenue in the 3060s, though critics continue to decry the company’s products.
