Shadowrun Wiki

Esprit Industries, headquartered in Paris, France, is the second largest French corporation. Its core business is military systems development, with other branches handling civilian electronics, oil, chemistry and infrastructures building. Its CEO was Herbert de Vaucanson, but following a string of scandal in 2071, he had to resign and was replaced by Katrina Showski, former leader of Cross Applied Technologies in Europe.[1]

Esprit Industries started as a merger of GIAT, FN Herstal, and Thales. Saeder-Krupp later acquired GIAT in 2038, giving it a seat on the board. Monobe also acquired Fabrique Nationale, given it a seat on the board as well. Esprit currently markets many successful and diverse military products, among them in 2062 the Thales-Raytheon military network monitoring and analysis electronic suite, the Agas cruise missile, and the SEPER personal armor (used by MET2000 and the French Foreign Legion).

Esprit's board is a mix of many opposing and conflicting interests. The Chairman is André Fergern, a former French-Egyptian arms dealer who claimed the Chairmanship in 2058, and is reportedly connected to Aztechnology and French intelligence. Two major corporations have seats on the board, from Saeder-Krupp and Monobe. Mitsuhama, through its joint ventures with Esprit, also has some influence there, along with various militaries (national and private).

In 2073 Esprit Industries has become a subsidiary of Aztechnology.
