From the clerks at our 14 Prospective Colony Permit offices to the metal workers building brand new terraform technology, our dedicated staff of employees and army of planetary engineers have made Weyland Industries the undisputed leader in the field of terraforming. Terraforming is the second largest sector of Weyland Industries, and continues to earn the greatest profit margin as our most consistently well-performing division.
The Weyland process of terraforming is uniquely successful. We explore each new planet discovered in the habitable zone of distant stars. Thousands of Weyland engineers and scientists are then dispatched to the newly discovered solar system. After setting up a temporary base, the planetary engineers spend months exhaustively testing the seismic stability, core layer densities and the soundness of the planet's ionosphere, noting weather patterns and pressure fluctuations.
If the conditions are favorable in most respects, Weyland employees claim a new territory in the name of the company, and only then begin constructing an Atmosphere Processor to initiate terraforming. The total process can take anywhere from 5 to 20 years depending on conditions.
Over the years, our few competitors have made attempts to install alternative versions of an atmospheric processing design only to return negative results, while Weyland colonies continue to grow and thrive throughout the galaxy. When it comes to building better worlds, from Luna to the Reticuli belt, Weyland Industries has by far the most reliable record and proven history of successful human colonization.
