Ultor's trademark logo is a stylised side-view of a continuous mining machine blade, coloured orange, which is present at numerous locations around Stilwater.
Over the course of several years between then and Saints Row 2, they diversify into other industries and become the most influential corporation in the city. In addition to clothing, their business interests include real estate development, power utilities, cell phones, pharmaceuticals, packaged food , casinos , weapons manufacturing (kept under wraps at The Pyramid) and radio stations.
Much of this growth is spearheaded by Dane Vogel, a highly ambitious and ruthless young executive who quickly becomes the company's CEO. Of particular interest to Vogel is the redevelopment of Saint's Row District; Ultor spends $383,781,187 to change the impoverished sector into a modern city, sprawling with glass towers and luxurious hotels. The Saints Row Church is turned from the 3rd Street Saints hideout into the "Stilwater Memorial Church", an upscale tourist trap which serves as a symbol against all gangs and corruption in Stilwater. In the same district, Ultor constructs the Phillips Building to serve as its new headquarters.
After surviving assassination attempts by the Ultor Masako, the Saints wage war on Ultor and destroy their prized top-secret laboratory The Pyramid. When Ultor's board of directors threaten to fire Vogel, he successfully manipulates the Saints into killing the entire board during a corporate yacht party, after which Vogel becomes Ultor's Chairman.[reference?]. The Saints hijack a military attack helicopter to assault and infiltrate the Phillips Building, and Vogel is killed by The Protagonist.[reference?]
Former Ultor Microbiologist Tera Patrick teams up with The Protagonist in hopes of uncovering one of Ultor's secret projects and the illegal, shadowy methods that they employed to cover their tracks. Although the duo succeed in acquiring the evidence they need to shut Ultor down[reference?], an interview with Jane Valderama of Channel 6 only leads to the humiliation of Patrick.[reference?] Her reputation tarnished, Patrick vows to get revenge on Ultor with or without the help of the media.[reference?]
Some time after Dane Vogel's demise, then-Ultor Head of Security Dexter Jackson, a former member of the Saints, sends the Masako to assassinate Eric Gryphon in an attempt to seize power for himself.[reference?] Desperate for help, Gryphon turned to The Protagonist, who agrees to protect him. Afterwards, the two of them team up to bring down Dex and foil his devious schemes.[reference?] After a few more failed attempts on Gryphon and The Protagonist[reference?], Dex decides to leave Stilwater to get away from the blood hungry duo.[reference?] Furious that Dex managed to escape, The Protagonist takes his anger out on Dex's closest associates during the events of the Ultor Family Fun Day.[reference?]
The long-standing feud between the Ultor Corporation and the 3rd Street Saints finally comes to an end when Gryphon and The Protagonist agree to cease hostilities. The Protagonist meanwhile, vows to track down Dex and kill him no matter what the cost.[reference?]
Saints Row: The ThirdEdit
Ultor has merged with the 3rd Street Saints to create the "Saints/Ultor Media Group", helping the gang to become international celebrities with their own line of clothes, drinks, and household brand products. This is revealed in the Power CG Trailer.[link? quotes?]
Ultor Chemical Disposal Services run the Steelport Chemical and Waste Disposal Plant on Arapice Island, which contains at least 15 containers of a green gas which turns people in Zombies. After The Protagonist attacks a convoy of STAG planes, the corpses of STAG soldiers break open several of the containers, releasing toxic gas which raises the dead and turns them into zombies. A large section of the Steelport Chemical and Waste Disposal Plant is destroyed when one of the same planes crashes into the plant.
Saints Row IVEdit
By the events of Saints Row IV the Saints are still affiliated with Ultor, including when The Protagonist is elected President of the United States. During initial Player Customization, a news headline says that top-level Ultor executives were caught in a price-fixing scandal. When inside Virtual Steelport after the Zin Invasion, The Protagonist asks Kinzie if the White House is still standing after the Zin's attack on it, and says they should get Ultor to rebuild it.
An unused homie conversation between Phillipe Loren and Julius Little reveals that between the events of Saints Row 2 and Saints Row: The Third, Ultor had been engaging in some rather "shady" business behind the backs of the 3rd Street Saints; ultimately, but indirectly, helping to pave the way for the events at the Stilwater 1st National Bank to occur.
- The name Ultor and logo were first used in Red Faction, a first-person shooter also created by Volition, Inc.
- Ultor is Latin for "Avenger." Mars Ultor was an aspect of the Roman God Mars.

- Stilwater is just one of the various divisions of the Ultor Corporation. Its headquarters based in Saints Row 2 bears a close resemblance with the Renaissance Center in Detroit, MI instead with a more triangular shape. A series of Ultor billboards with the Ultor logo features the word "Renaissance".
- Ultor does not have their own notoriety bar, but instead they use the police notoriety.
- The Moneyshot Pack for Saints Row: The Third is an "Ultor-themed" DLC that comes with the Ultor Assassin outfit, the fully-automatic sniper rifle, TOGO-13, and a variant of the Specter called the Ultor Interceptor.
- Ultor shares many similarities to the fictional company OCP in the Robocop franchise in the way that it is a mega corporation that deals in a variety of different products and services, has a secret agenda, owns the city's police force and uses brutal force and corruption in order to transform a crime ridden and decaying city into a modern metropolis.
- The logo is similar to Combining Cyrillic Millions symbol, albeit it is reversed, and connected by an inner circle.
Phillipe and Julius
- Julius: "So what did the Syndicate want with Stilwater anyway?"
Phillipe: "With the increased corporate businesses in the city, it was a natural area to expand into."
Julius: "You mean Ultor."
Phillipe: "Indeed. My organisation had long-standing business deals with them, which made the prospect more appealing."
Julius: "But the Saints ended up owning Ultor."
Phillipe: "The media division, perhaps. But to think Ultor did not have other agendas is somewhat naive, don't you think?"
Julius: "Well shit."
