Shinohara Heavy Industries is a multi-million dollar Labor Manufacturer that had apparently gotten a late start in the Labor Market, as indicated by the first movie in passing conversation. Despite this, it seems to be a heavy manufacturer of Labors for various tasks, especially in the construction/demolition business, as indicated by the large numbers of Labors being identified in several of the series and movies being from said corporation by the various characters, both pilots and non-pilots alike. Even the AV-98 Ingram seems to be manufactured by them, due to it being stated as such in the first few episodes of the TV series alone. Officer Shinohara Asuma of the Section2, Division 2; Team 1's father is the head of this corporation, and the two seem to have an estranged relationship between each other. As a minor note, he makes a few appearances in the first movie.
