Traxus Heavy Industries is an interplanetary human industrial company. It had facilities on Earth,[1] Reach,[2] and Andesia.[3]


The Traxus Tower was also the main evacuation point for the city during the Siege of New Alexandria during the Fall of Reach. With the help of SPARTAN-B312, the tower's executive pad was cleared and held by the Bullfrogs to enable the evacuation.[2] By October of 2552, Traxus was advertising in New Mombasa.[4]

In 2556, Traxus was placed under "Active Investigation" by ONI alongside many other companies after the Sedra terrorist attack.[5]

Sometime in either 2557 or 2558, Traxus had ads placed in the city of Pilvros, New Carthage.[6]
