Foundry was a planet in the Colonies.
Prior to the Clone Wars, Foundry was one of many worlds used by the Techno Union to manufacture B1 battle droids. Its workers designed the powerful B3 ultra battle droid. It was one of five places where such production was stopped by the Techno Union to give the illusion battle droids were no longer being produced, whereas in reality such droids were being mass-produced in secret Outer Rim Territories facilities such as Geonosis. The planet was rich in the minerals hfredium, kammris and dolovite: metals vital in construction of starships, as well as for the construction of durasteel, ceraglass, and chromium.
By 4 ABY, the planet had become an Imperial fortress world. Foundry and nearby Commenor were abandoned by the Empire in 6 ABY, when New Republic forces moved to the Colonies from the Kashyyyk system.
