Border World Exports (or Bowex for short) is a pioneer in the exploration of the Border Worlds and an exclusive supplier to the Bretonian Military and Police.

Synopsis

Border World Exports, commonly known as Bowex, is the single oldest shipping conglomerate in all of Sirius. Originally founded in 66 AS as the Bretonia Exploration & Trading Company, Bowex has been the backbone of the Bretonian economy for centuries, and has been involved in nearly every major event in Bretonian history. In addition, throughout it's history, Bowex has become known as a pioneer in the exploration of the border worlds.

History

In 66 AS, a small commercial concern, the Bretonia Exploration & Trading company, was founded to explore the mineral fields of the New London system, and ship resources back to the planet. As Bretonia expanded into new system, BE&T led the way in the historic Bee-One explorer, and is responsible for every major discovery in Bretonian space.

In 310 AS, BE&T acquired the assets of several smaller Bretonian shipping concerns, and renamed itself to Border World Exports. Bowex then received it's Royal Charter from Prince Harry XXI, and has since been the sole supplier of material to the Bretonian Government in general, and the Bretonian Armed Forces in particular. Border World Exports has since been nationalized, along with BMM, and now functions as a part of the Bretonian Government. The nationalization of these two companies have historically increased the prosperity of the Bretonian public in comparison to the other Houses by reducing the strain placed on the public in the form of defense taxes.

Since 791 AS, Bowex has faced new and fierce competition from Gateway Interstellar. Despite Bowex's best efforts, both in space and in the halls of Parliament, Gateway Interstellar has continued to grow and cut into Bowex's profits. Whether Bowex can find a way to check Gateway's continued growth remains to be seen.
