Synopsis

Daumann Heavy Construction is the largest mining and manufacturing firm in Rheinland Producing both military and civillian ships, personal weapons, equipment and processed products.

History

DHC was founded in year 54 A.S by Alexander Daumann, and has since then been the leading manufacturing and indsutrial firm in Rheinland. Today the corporation is led by Rebecca Daumann, and covers a very wide market, including mining and processing of industrial ore, construction of civilian and military ships, weaponry research and production and even processing industrial waste into fertilizers. Together with Republican Shipping as our main corporate ally, DHC still holds dominancy in most of Rheinland's industrial markets, and everyday looks to expand and increase the well being of Rheinland population.

On its eraly years, DHC was the sole researcher and producer of ships, from surveyors and the first Hegemon vessels, DHC was known for its production capabilities, quickly filling up the colonies warehouses with materials. The most famous explorers like Von-Rohe, came from Daumann and it was thanks to the combined efforts of the explorers and the corporation that Rheinland quickly developed a powerful fleet.

When Liberty was discovered, DHC was in charge of designing and producing the military warships, the first gunboat models and the first cruicers were Daumann's invention. Soon DHC turned its minerals into strong alloys to build ships, and developed weaponry and systems for the Imperial Fleet.

DHC has acquired several minor corporations to expand its market, an the members of the Daumann family have merged their own enterprises into the corporation. One of the big mergers came in the 7th century, when Henrik Daumann took ovr the corporation, merging his personal weapons company into what is known today as Daumann Arms Division. DHC quickly became the biggest arms manufacturing company in Rheinland.


Our Goals:
As the most powerful and important firm in Rheinland, it is our duty to maintain Rheinland's place in the Sirius economy. We will ensure that there is a constant supply of our products to be used at home and exported throughout the colonies, and to this end we will continue to expand into new mining fields. We will make jobs for the Rheinland people, and we will produce only the best products. We will never stop growing, and we will never stop providing our customers with the finest ships and weapons in all of Sirius.

Subsidiaries

Daumann Arms Division

Daumann Arms is the main producer of personal weaponry, combat equipment, and combat vehicles of the corporation and Rheinland. Among the most famous weapons are the Daumann Shredder and the Solar flare grenade. In Nuremberg, D.A.D works closely with Republican to produce military vehicles.

Kaufmann Interstellar Freight Company

Kaufmann Interstellar was a medium freight company operating in Rheinland's core worlds. DHC initially bought them to depend less on Republican supply lines, so they could focus in the shipping of goods while DHC supplied its own bases. Eventually Kaufmann was completely absorbed and the freighters were retagged as DHC. Today Kaufmann the only Kaufmann vessel in existence is a security eagle in the Daumann Museum of Industry

Adler Private Security

Another forgotten firm, Adler was initially founded as a mercenary corporation during the turf wars of Omega space. Eventually after the turf wars ended and the mining groups came to agreements, most of the mercenaries were offered a job as DHC security pilots, while others decided to leave and find luck somewhere else in Sirius. Nowadays, Adler remains as a back up force in case of need, and several of the company's warehouses in Stuttgart are filled with Adler combat ships, mothballed and some, even brand new, packed up for an eventual conflict.

West Rheinland Fleet

The WRF was a joint project between DHC and Stuttgart local government to increase the security of West Rheinland. While officially the fleet was a provincial army, under the jurisdiction of the Stuttgart government and RMHC, it actually was a private army for the corporation, enforcing rheinland law in Omega space, and created to reinforce the Adler wings. Eventually, with the turf wars over, Adler dismantled and problems between the corporation and the government due to the influence DHC had over the fleet, the fleet was dismantled, and the bases in Stuttgart purchased by DHC and repurposed as warehouses to store the WRF and Adler ships. Today all of the WRF fighters and bombers remain stored, some even new straight from the production line, and the flagships were reassigned to the miltary reserves. Several WRF pilots were offered jobs as security pilots while others retired or joined the reserves.

Daumann Indsutrial Research Facilities

Holstein, owned by DHC has seen many independent firms rise just to be later bought by the corporation after most of the hard work is done, one of these firms, was Holstein Energy Corporation. Initially the firm was a conglomerate of energy corporations before DHC acquired Holstein. After the planet was bought, DHC injected investment capital to several corporations, including HEC. When the corporation grew it was acquired by DHC. HEC was not only dedicated to supplying power to the millions of families in the planet, but also research of new energy sources. Quickly the corporation started working on an old filed project, the Fulcrum Generator, which is nowadays, a ongoing project. Two more victims of the Daumann obsession with market controls, Engel fertilizers, and Holstein Water Services. Engel fertilizers was an agricultural research and production company, who utilized industrial waste to produce fetilizers. It was merged into Daumann, who used Holstein as the dumpster of unusued materials and now instead, used the waste to make more products. Holstein Water services was a major company in Holstein, owning nearly 70% of the water supply business. WHS produced bottled water, processes salt water into fresh water, and supplied most industries and homes with tap water. With so many corporations the board of directors decided to merge all into one, and with so manny acronyms, they had no option but renaming the conglomerate DIRF. Today DIRF supplies the planet with energy and water, but also produces fertilizers, industrial research, industrial use water and processing, and supervises the terraforming project in planet Holstein. Together with the corporate government of Holstein(Being the planet private property, thus governed by DHC under Rheinland Law)are the first succesful corporatocracy in Sirius.


Departments

Department of Development

Development oversees mining operations, DIRF, DAD, the Nuremberg factorioes and the surveyor crews. It's main job is to ensure the constant advancement of the corporation production and the constant expansion into new territories, and new products to sell. The Mining Fleet is under direct control of this department.


Deparmtent of Commerce

Commerce supervises the entire transport fleet, internal supply lines(Ex-Kaufmann Interstellar), and is in charge of deals with other corporations and the stability of the corporate bases and their constant supply. The transport fleet is under direct control of Commerce.


Department of Security

Security is in charge of Daumann escorts and patrol wings. Aditionally it supervises the mercenary wings, bounty contracts and early warning systems in corporate bases. In the pas Security also oversaw Adler and WRF operations. Security also provides training to new pilots and constant supply of combat equipment.


Daumann Landmarks

The corporation takes advantage of its position to produce pro corporate proganda. By turning several of their unused buildings and building new projects, the corporation keeps a positive reputation among general population.

Daumann Mansion

Located in New Berlin, the mansion is a landmark of great interest by tourists and residents alike. Centuries ago, it was a magnificent mansion located in a private island just outside the coast in the Government district; nowadays the water was replaced by artificial structures to support planetary expansion, and the island is now part of the mainland. The magnificent mansion is now a heavily fortified fortress, complete with underground bunkers, air defense systems, radars, and an entire regiment of Daumann security personnel stationed permanently inside the reinforced plating fortress. Inside the mansion lives the main branch of the Daumann Family, and a few members of the secondary branches, while most of the remaining family lives in Holstein and a lower number in Nuremberg.


The Dockports

The dockports are the great hubs of the transport fleet and the escort wing. The huge privately owned "Airbases" are used for a variety of tasks; each one hosts a series of simulators to train new pilots and captains, and to examine their performance on the yearly performance examinations. A dockport is also the place where new crews are assigned, after passing the simulator tests. It works as a ship warehouse, where new and old ships alike are stored waiting for reassignment or decomission. One of these dockports houses "The prison", where captured pilots, mostly Hessians, are taken before being delivered directly to the Rheinland federal police or military. The Dockports are located at Hamburg, New Berlin and Holstein. The dockports are very secure and can host hundreds of ships and service dozens of them at a time. Truly they are landmarks on themselves and a mark of Rheinland's industrial might.


Daumann Museum of Industry

The mueseum of Industry is a huge museum located in New Berlin, which covers most of the corporate history of DHC; and the industrial history of Rheinland. The museum works as a main front for corporate propaganda.
