Holowan Laboratories, also known as Holowan Mechanicals, was a company active during the Clone Wars, a galaxy-wide conflict fought between the forces of the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems, that developed and manufactured weapons and battle droid models.[1] They manufactured the IG-series of droids,[2] which included the IG-100 MagnaGuard, the IG-86 sentinel droid, and the IG-RM bodyguard and enforcer droid,[1] the former being fielded extensively by the Separatist Droid Army.[3] They also manufactured the electrostaff, a weapon often used by MagnaGuards.[2]

Following the conflict's resolution, the company was able to bypass the Galactic Empire's ban on the production of battle droids by reclassifying their products as security droids.[4] Holowan Laboratories manufactured the rogue IG-86 assassin droid IG-88, who operated as a bounty hunter during the Galactic Civil War.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Holowan Laboratories was incorrectly identified as Halowan Laboratories in the 2014 young readers book Star Wars Rebels: Head to Head, written by Pablo Hidalgo.[4]
