"We develop many technologies here and we offer them to the highest bidder."
―Wat Tambor[src]

The Techno Union was a commerce guild comprised of technology firms[16] that allied itself with the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Separatist Crisis leading up to the Clone Wars. During this conflict, the group was led by Foreman Wat Tambor. They were responsible for the design of many of the droids used by the Separatist Droid Army, including the B1 and B2 battle droids.[1] The Techno Union claimed neutrality in the Clone Wars,[12] and were even represented by Senator Gume Saam in the Galactic Senate,[3] but in deeds continued to support the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[12] After the Clone Wars, the Republic was reformed into the Galactic Empire, and the Techno Union was absorbed by the new government, forcing its low-level technicians and machine smiths to seek new employment all over the galaxy.[15]


Separatist CrisisEdit

During a summit on the planet Geonosis, the Techno Union pledged to supply a droid army to the Separatist Alliance and Wat Tambor pledged allegiance to the Separatist Alliance, by extension granting himself and the Union representation on the Separatist Council.[1]

Clone WarsEdit

Using it's status as an important galactic corporation the Techno Union lobbied in the Galactic Senate for an increased war effort through its senator Gume Saam. Their intention was to create greater need for the Union's products from the Republic.[3]

After a Jedi infiltration of the Citadel, clone trooper "Echo" was presumed to be dead. After being captured by the Separatists, the Techno Union purchased Echo to experiment on. The Techno Union created a brain-computer interface of Echo.[12]

During the Battle of Anaxes the Techno Union was able to utilize a strategy algorithm that Echo had on him and sold the algorithm's predictions as a software service to the Confederacy.[12]

Sometime before the Battle of Anaxes the Techno Union created a prototype organic decimator, planning to sell it to the Separatists.[12]
