Gladus Industries is a one of the numerous corporate divisions of the Turian Hierarchy, mostly responsible for the manufacturing of military grade technologic and electronic products such as omni tools, visors, scopes, computer interfaces and many others. It came under the administration of Jarrar Mallenis in 2144 CE who at the time, having finished his compulsory service, demonstrated great skill in financial management and optimisation of production efficiency, thus granting him, a high position in the Hierarchy, akin to that of the CEO of a government corporation.
Gladus, named after the turian spirit of inovation and ingenuity in an old turian language, is the leading supplier of electronic devices to the turian military, mostly praised for its high quality visors. It is also known for being one of the less common Hierarchy companies that have officially produced a civillian line of consumer electronics. Though this line has not been as successful in the Citadel Space markets, military-grade products approved for civillian usage continue to sell very well along with entities like Armax Arsenal and Cipritine Armoury. The same cannot be said for the client world though, where Gladus consumer product sales rank amongst the highest.
Besides the good quality of its products, what Gladus is probably most famous for is Gladus Prime, the company's largest and most valuable asset. It is a small, arid world in the Minos Wasteland that bears home to what is possibly the single largest manufacturing complex in Council Space. It's home to approximately thirty thousand permanent residents that live in domed settlements and work in the huge factories surrounding them, whilst about just as many workers commute from the nearby turian colony world of Invictus on a daily basis using the direct shuttle link between the two systems.
