The Oakoms Group is an Alteran-based, multi-national technology research, development and manufacture company. It specialises in a number of fields, namely aerospace, electronics and infrastructure projects. It was formed by the merger of several smaller companies, namely the aircraft company Hemmingway, the electronics manufacturer Oakom and the aircraft manufacturer Yellownorth in the early 21st century. It's headquarters are located in Capan, Altera. The company is widely known for its development of the Galiant engines during the Imperial War, as well as the Lantea engines used to power the AAe 4-11 airliners.

History


Oakoms was formed by aircraft pioneer Geoffrey Oakoms in 1911, setting up a small workshop in Segovia, Altera, to manufacture engine and aeroplane parts for private aviation enthusiasts. As the popularity of aircraft took off with the middle and upper classes, so did the small company - eventually expanding to a number a workshops around the country. Following the adoption of aircraft by the Alteran Defence Forces, the company began receiving orders direct from government - including the development and production of their first aircraft.

By the end of the Imperial War, the company had grown to the largest supplier of aircraft parts and engines - often collaborating with fellow aircraft company Yellownorth Aircraft Ltd. Although Oakoms had purchased a large percentage of shares in Yellownorth, it wasn't until that it had over 60% of the shares that the company floated the idea of a merger. In 1948, the two companies merged to form the Oakoms group and created several branches to focus on several industries: electronics, aerospace, rail and infrastructure.

In the 21st Century, Oaksoms is a primary contractor in several key areas within Alteran industry, namely rail, construction and aerospace.

Operations


The Oakoms Group has made many electronic devices and equipment used by the Alteran Armed Forces from its past, including the STARS helmet for the army and the military police. It has worked with Alteran Aerospace on various projects, develop and produced its Sariel fighter in the 80s and 90s and made its STARS defensive aids. Oakoms often worked with several mulit-national companies and designed the electronics used on Alteran ships. Oakoms is also exploring possibilities of developing a light aircraft carrier for the Alteran navy. It is also working on X-ray imaging, finances, energy and operating commercial satellites.

Oakoms is the primary supplier of trains for the national Alteran networks, as well as rail cars for the privately owned Sterling Metro systems.
