“The silver lining.”
After the Universal Protection Act, NAM was no longer able to sell arms and munitions to civilians, and a massive vacuum was left in the market. Founded in early YE 30, Styrling Vervaardiging is a small scale arms manufacturer that hopes to profit from this gap and replace NAM products that are gradually becoming more and more unavailable to civilian buyers.
Rather than complain over the unavailability of NAM goods, people would be able to enjoy the high standard Styrling hopes to set on the new market.
The company's goods themselves are intended to showcase the reputation for rugged reliability, famous in Nepleslian designs throughout the last 3 decades of history in known space, and bring forward elegance and sophistication in a completely Nepleslian manner. Styrling itself specializes in firearms and combat gear, and hopes to diversify into other markets by late YE 30. It has been made clear, however, that Styrling has no intentions of breaking into the military market and replacing NAM products, as that would be highly detrimental to the security of both enterprises, and the progress made since Nepleslia's independence.
In mid YE 30, Styrling began large scale expansion, settling into a facility some three hundred kilometers north of Prime City, that came to be called Silver City. Connected by a high speed rail system between, the complex would offer thousands of new jobs to people on Nepleslia Prime, and might very well turn into a another settlement with time.
In YE 36, Foster Styrling officially partnered with his niece, Alexis Kimball-Styrling, to open a branch of the company, Kimball Limited, formerly “Alexis Arms”, to more fully integrate with the desires of both its civilian and military clients for weapons modifications, upgrades, and customized gear within the boundaries of the law.
This decision was following the overwhelming uprising against the Mishhuvurthyar during their occupation of the Nepleslian homeworld, where civilian gun-owners played a large part in the city's salvation in YE 32.
