Gatac Manufacture ( Xi'an: Ao’t.o’a’Ng.at’ak (Proper); literally the manufacturer of House Ng.at'ak; ) is a Xi'an commercial and industrial spacecraft manufacturer located on Tethle'a. Like other companies in the Xi'an Empire, Gatac has been granted the exclusive right to manufacture certain types of products for the empire. For Gatac, this has made them the sole manufacturer of industrial spacecraft for the Xi'an. The company has a reputation in the Empire for producing cutting-edge and reliable cargo ships. The company has a long-standing reputation as a 'knowledge-driven' corporation. It shares several of its top ship designers with the Xi'an manufacturer that manufacture the capital Xi'an cargo ship. It is also committed to looking to other civilizations for interesting engineering approaches to incorporate into its own designs. If there is any kind of conference or discussion about ship-making techniques (no matter how high or low level), odds are, there will be a Gatac representative there, studiously taking notes.
During the Great Divide (20044 - 19755 BCE), House Ng.at'ak was a vassal of House Ru'a responsible for building and maintaining vehicles and spacecraft that formed the backbone of Ru'a's logistics operations. Three of Ng.at'ak's elders perished alongside the leadership of Ru'a when House Kl.ō unintentionally poisoned the atmosphere of the Xi'an homeworld RyiXy'an. When Ru'a was made the first Imperial House in the aftermath of the tragedy, newly elevated Emperor Ya.l'ē se Ru'a rewarded Ng.at'ak for their service by granting them exclusive rights to build industrial spacecraft for the Xi'an Empire in perpetuity.
Over the years Gatac Manufacture has ensured its continued existence not only through its cutting edge and practical tech, but also because its Council features two direct relatives of Emperor Kr.ē.
After the 2947 Human-Xi’an Trade Initiative (HuXa) went into effect, the company began funding research to create spacecraft adapted to the needs of both Xi'an and Humans. The first result of this work is the Railen medium cargo ship.
