Origin Industries is dedicated to the manufacture of public goods, with its efforts primarily focused on transportation and defense. As a result, the range of products goes from personal firearms to large spacecraft. Unlike some other companies, they enjoy producing both quality and quantity, but this is only helpful to their business.
| “When it comes to quality, look to the start - Origin Industries! Quality products since YE 30!”
- Origin Slogan
The Origin-Mart, more commonly simply known as Ori-Mart, is Origin's face throughout the Kikyo sector. These normally industrial-sized consumer dreamlands serve as an outlet and retail paradise for origin's products, which range from hygiene items all the way up to star ships. While not all Origin-Mart locations carry all products, many of them are large, and most of them will carry consumer goods, personnel-grade weaponry, ground vehicles, and shuttlecraft. Any non-restricted Origin item can be ordered from any Ori-Mart, regardless of size.
In YE 29, three like-minded people got together bent on starting a company through which they could submit their designs. Though all three wanted to design things, none of them wanted to design the same kind of thing, so they broke it up into three sub-companies all under the main corporation. During YE 30, once sales began, Origin Industries found they had enough excess to start a fourth company, which specialized in Power Armors and Mecha. In YE 31, origin was forced off of Tami, and made their new headquarters at their station known as the OOSY, or Dawn station. Once settled, the corporation got several orders for equipment, from the Star Army of Yamatai and the Abwehran Star Empire.
By YE 33, Origin's volume of sales and its success in the market brought its share up from a small upstart and into one of the largest active corporations in the Kikyo sector. With an expansion of people flooding into the company's two starbases, the establishment of a number of stores on most inhabited worlds, the addition of personnel to its commercial fleet, and the growing number of contracts from governments and other large organizations, as well as a growing range of products to produce and sell, Origin has spent most of its capital on expanding, and building up resources in order to expand further, all in the name of better serving customers.
While Origin seemed to be doing fairly well in all markets, late YE 33 saw a lot more focus on the general civilian market, with considerably less of its money spent on the development of military-type items. However, money was still poured into that area in order to support and expand upon existing technology and research a few niche designs. In addition, Origin acted to foster relationships between the corporation and national governments or militaries over the years. During this time, several deals were made as Origin continued to do business, producing stations and products for various other corporations and entities.
It wasn't until YE 39 that Origin Industries made its first major move in years, purchasing the ONI division from Zen Arms. However, this soon proved to make waves in the market, and to assuage fears of future corporate conglomeration and takeovers, allowed ONI to purchase itself and thus become a freestanding corporate entity.
Origin industries' Original headquarters and manufacturing facility were originally based on Tami, due to the large amount of space available for them to build the site. At the time, it was partly chosen because it is fairly close to Yamatai, Elysia, and Nepleslia. After Tami was invaded by Mishhuvurthyar however, the headquarters was moved to an out-of-the-way star system, Ake, to protect corporate holdings from attack. It wasn't until YE 34, when the Fifth fleet retook Tami, that Origin returned to begin reconstruction.

Origin Industries' facilities on Tami include several buildings, one being the research and manufacturing facility of OrIn and ODM, another being the factory for OMC, and the third being the main offices of the corporation. Also on the grounds is a small spaceport with a control tower, and outdoor storage for the larger products made by Origin Industries. This Facility was abandoned due to a Mishhuvurthyar Invasion between YE 31 and YE 34, with all operations moved to Dawn Station during the meantime. The Tami facility remained inactive during YE 35 for extensive refurbishing and remodeling. By the following year, it was ready and operational again, this time, as Origin's secondary location.
The ORIN Orbital Shipyards (OOSY) is a large space station which has recently been completed. The OOSY is Origin's new main manufacturing base after the evacuation of Tami. Also known as Dawn Station, the OOSY serves as Origin's main base of operations. In addition to functioning as a corporate headquarters, it also serves as the center of research and development, the primary production center of Origin, as well as all the functions of a mobile city.

Origin industries is made to add a little bit of depth and variety to some of the more mundane things, such as cars or cargo ships. It's also another place where players can have their ideas created and come to fruition as something usable in the SA universe, aimed more for Civilians rather than militaries.
