|Chiba class Shipyard|
Construction finished on Yukawa Shipyard in 118 A.S., and it is the primary shipbuilding facility for Kishiro Technologies. Historically, the shipyard has focused on the mass-production of civilian transports. Yukawa and its chief competitor Yokohama outcompeted the Liberty shipyards in Colorado, and to this day remain the choice yards for many smaller shipping companies who favor pricing over patriotism. Yukawa has been expanded, modified and partially rebuilt over the centuries. Virtually no part of the original construction remains. Aside from Optronics and Polymer-based materials, Yukawa is forced to import most of it's materials from other houses.
Yukawa Shipyard also constructs many midsized ships for the Gas Miners Guild, such as the Kamome-class Gas Miner. The GMG contracts account for over half the work being done at the yard, most of which was previously handled at Yokohama.
