Join This Faction
Hoersch-Kessel Driveyards is one of the oldest ship production factions still operating in the galaxy today. Initially founded before the Clone Wars, HKD served as one of the major ship manufacturers that funded the CIS war machine.
After the fall of the Confederacy at the end of the Clone wars, HKD became an independent company that focused on producing smaller ships and combat ready frigates for profit. In Year 9, HKD joined forces with a resurgent Corporate Alliance and shifted its production priorities from warships to freighters. This worked very well for the Alliance and soon the Confederacy was Reborn.
Within the CIS, HKD prospered. Production capacity boomed to levels not seen since the Clone Wars. When the Corporate Alliance decided to leave the Confederacy in Year 15, HKD leadership made the difficult decision of staying within the CIS, ending their long term partnership with the Corporate Alliance. Under the direction of Barak Kohen, HKD once again started work producing the large ships needed by the Confederate Navy. The faction was very successful and profits soared.
With the datacard hack of Year 18 and subsequent merger with Hoar-Chall, HKD lost many of its specialized ship designs and had to rethink its process. Currently, the faction works hard to meet the demands of the Confederate Navy and Army. With large production complexes in the Hevvrol, Mondress, and Ciutric sectors, HKD is one of the strongest independent production factions remaining in the Galaxy.
HKD is always looking for smart, innovative members who can work in a team atmosphere. The research and development teams are constantly striving to bring the galaxy and the Confederacy better ships. The faction offers sales to both corporations and individuals and provides discounts for large orders. Benefits for members include heavily discounted datacard use, production facility rental, and many additional benefits granted to members of the Confederacy. If one is interested in employment by HKD or any of the Confederate groups, they should contact the faction leader or Head of State Siejo Kutol.
