Mani & Telson
Mani & Telson was founded in 1886 AP. From its inception, adaptation and evolution have been the major motivator and influenced the company into playing an integral part in the creation of a more accessible and informed world through our commitment to building and maintaining transportation and information infrastructure. Most recently, Mani & Telson has evolved into a multinational conglomerate which aims to provide Western Cressimo with the highest quality goods and services in the markets of consumer electronics, personal & household products, and food production & distribution.
In 2025 AP, Mani & Telson’s then tiny R&D faction completed its first working time machine. The time machine gave them an advantage over their competition. When Cressimo’s environment reached it’s tipping point, with global warming, mass animal extinction, extreme air, land and water pollution, Mani & Telson was there with all the solutions. They slowly put their competition out of business or acquired them. They expanded rapidly and soon become the sole company Cressimo’s governments relied on for supply. By 2071, they were a mega monopoly, producing and supplying everything in a time where demand far exceeds supply.
