Owing its formation to the destruction of the Twelfth Star Guard mercenary unit during the Clan Invasion, the unit's former chief tech, Felifious Bander, realized that defeating the invaders with Succession Wars era technology was an impossible task. Entering the safer and more lucrative BattleMech refitting business, Bander used his considerable reputation to convince other former mercenary techs to join his firm. This growing pool of experienced professionals became the company's most valued resource, quickly establishing its reputation for quality at competitive prices.[1]

Using his customer's refits and his experience against the invaders, Bander also developed a BattleMech design, the Bandersnatch, which he boldly proclaimed to be the most versatile design in the Inner Sphere. However, due to the size of the company, construction of even a semi-automated factory to produce the Bandersnatch was out of the question. Each Bandersnatch is built by hand and takes approximately ten months to complete. Barely a half-dozen were in existance by 3055.[1]

It is unknown what became of the company during the Word of Blake Jihad. It is known that Terra Firma had joined the Word of Blake Protectorate by 3071 and it is likely that Bander Battlemechs drew WoB attention some time afterwards. [citation needed]
