Extech was once one of the largest export firms in Seattle. Five years ago they were the 2nd largest import/export company in Seattle, under Pyramidion. That year they were found guilty of paying off a Pyramidion employee to falsify data linking Pyramidion to the illegal production of chemical agents. They were heavily fined by the court, damaging the company’s financial stability. The real damage was to its reputation. They lost many of their largest contracts after that controversy which put the final nail in the coffin.
