History

2525-2540 -> Growth
The Black Phalanx Corporation benefited from the many new trade routes and the rapid expansion of the human territory. Due to clever strategic placement of important trading centers the company’s profits are steadily increasing.

2541-2800 -> Expansion
The expansion of mankind into the universe, the founding of more and more trade lines increases the number of needed armed escorts. Due to the two Tevarin Wars and the cold war with the Empire Xi’An the military is increasingly present within the boundaries.
This fact promotes the growth of the Black Phalanx Corporation, as more and more assaults by smugglers, pirates and aliens threaten the commercial lines. The Black Phalanx Corporation is now one of the leading companies in the field of Convoy Protection with offices on all major commercial stations and planets.

2800-2940 -> Decline
After the end of the military regime of Emperor Messer, and therefore the following subsequent period of relative peace the competition is increasing and the earnable profits are facing a large decrease. After the UEE SynthWorld project started, the economic situation of the Black Phalanx Corporation is more threatened because of the total breakdown of profit.

2940 – Today -> Restructuring
After the takeover of management by Horatio McClaw, he sold large parts of the company and rebuilt the entire product portfolio. Through the introduction of new shareholders and business partners of Horatio McClaw the Black Phalanx Corporation is regaining its former strength. With the new strategic direction of the company and the military and economic expertise of the new company’s management the Black Phalanx Corporation is well positioned to kick against the uncertainties of the future.
