Edgars Industries was the fourth largest mega-corporation in the Earth Alliance. It was the largest pharmaceutical producer on Mars, and had a sizable chemical and biological weapons program contracted with Earthforce.
William Edgars was the owner of the company and perhaps its founder. Under Mr. Edgars, the company enjoyed record profits, however, he led the company into a number of morally questionable undertakings, which included a plan to suppress telepaths with a virus. The company also funded many other "black projects" including a Life Extension research program headed by Robert Bryson. William Edgars died in mid 2261, murdered by Psi Corps. Subsequently ownership of the company passed to Lise Edgars, his wife.Lise Edgars married Michael Garibaldi in late 2262 and had him take over the day-to-day operations, as she found she had little stomach for the corruption and intrigue rampant in the business. One of Garibaldi's first acts was to replace the board of directors with people he preferred. Other projects of Edgars Industries under Garibaldi include funding the Victory class destroyers and supporting the Telepath Resistance.
