Encyclopedia description

The Hardware Supplier manufactures materials needed for the construction of large scale structures such as ship hulls, station skeletons and accelerator rings. While not itself regarded as high-tech, most other high-tech manufacturers rely on materials produced here. The production of large structures requires capability to deliver vast quantities of extra-large building blocks. It is not unheard of for a Hardware Supplier to manufacture steel beams of multi-kilometre length, or coherent steel walls (hulls) of several square kilometres.
