Ares Heavy Lifting
Ares Heavy Lifting Inc. was one of the big megacorps to develop on Mars during the Interplanetary Age.

Originally a manufacturer of Interplanetary Heavy Lift vehicles, it diversified into a wide range of industries. Major divisions and subsidiaries such as Ares Space, Ares Genomics (specializing in Martian terraformers) and Ares Global Virtualtainment made the parent corp a healthy profit in aerospace, entertainment, biotech and many other areas. A wide-ranging business empire, Ares extends its interests through minor subsidiaries to such diverse markets as simsense, utilities, fashion, phenotech, automotive engineering, and scientific research, with a number of offices on Earth, L5, Luna, and Ceres. By the late 3rd century a.t., the megacorp had become a symbol of planetary pride, holding its own against such formidable rivals as Lee Interorbital, GeneTEK, Hyperion Interplanetary, High Frontier Industries, Adaptive Nanosystems, and Neotek. Despite its far-flung empire and AI guidance, the corporation did not survive the Technocalypse of 541.
