- The Red Faction Wiki also has an article about Ultor.
- "A brighter future, and a better life."
- — Motto
Ultor's trademark logo is a stylised side-view of a continous mining machine blade, coloured orange, which can be found in numerous locations all over Stilwater.
As of Saints Row, Ultor Unlimited was a major clothing company with the naming rights to the Ultor Dome, but didn't seem to have any other products or services. Over the course of several years, between then and Saints Row 2, they diversify into a long list of other industries and become the most influential corporation in the city. In addition to clothing, their business interests include real estate development, cell phone manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, packaged food, casinos, weapons manufacturing (kept under wraps at The Pyramid) and radio stations.
Much of this growth was spearheaded by Dane Vogel, a highly ambitious and ruthless young executive who quickly rose to become the company's CEO. Of particular interest to Vogel was the redevelopment of Saints Row; spending $383,781,187[reference?], Ultor changed the impoverished sector into a modern city, sprawling with glass towers and luxurious hotels. Stilwater Memorial Church was turned from the 3rd Street Saints hideout into an upscale tourist trap to serve as a symbol against all gangs and corruption in Stilwater.[reference?] In the same district, Ultor constructed the Phillips Building skyscraper to serve as its new headquarters.
Vogel achieved many of these ends through corrupt, under-the-table deals with several gangs and the Stilwater Police Department. He had a partnership with Shogo Akuji in Poseidon's Palace Casino, until his father Kazuo Akuji opted out of their deal and Vogel successfully directed the Saints to kill them both. Vogel was also bullied by Maero of the Brotherhood of Stilwater to aid him in his gang war with the Saints, but failed.
Eager to redevelop nearby Shivington in the same manner as Saint's Row, Vogel planned to start a gang war to take advantage of low real estate prices before eliminating the Saints and redeveloping Shivington. 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 threatened to fire Vogel, he successfully manipulated the Saints into killing the entire board during a corporate yacht party. Vogel, now Ultor's Chairman of the Board, was preparing to publicly unveil his Shivington redevelopment at a press conference when the Saints attacked. After Vogel fled to the Phillips Building, the Saints hijacked a military attack helicopter to assault and infiltrate the tower. Vogel was killed by The Protagonist, after being shot from the window of his office on the top floor and plummeting to the street.
Almost immediately after Vogel's death, Ultor appointed Eric Gryphon as their new CEO and/or Chairman of the Board.
Former Ultor Microbiologist Tera Patrick teamed 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 succeeded in acquiring the evidence they needed to shut Ultor down[reference?], an interview with Jane Valderama of Channel 6 just led to the humiliation of Patrick.[reference?] Her reputation tarnished, Patrick vowed 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, sent the Masako to assassinate Eric Gryphon in an attempt to seize power for himself.[reference?] Desperate for help, Gryphon turned to The Protagonist, who agreed to protect him. Afterwards, the two of them teamed up to bring down Dex and foil his devious schemes.[reference?] After a few more failed attempts on Gryphon and The Protagonist[reference?], Dex decided to leave Stilwater to get away from the blood hungry duo.[reference?] Furious that Dex managed to escape, The Protagonist took 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 came to an end when Gryphon and The Protagonist agreed to stop the hostilities between their respective groups. The Protagonist meanwhile, vowed to track down Dex and kill him no matter what the cost.[reference?]
Dex has yet to be found by The Protagonist and his fate remains unknown.
Saints Row: The ThirdEdit
After Eric Gryphon secured his position as CEO, Ultor merged/allied itself with the 3rd Street Saints, helping the gang to become international celebrities with their own line of clothes, drinks, and household brand products. This was revealed in the Power CG Trailer.[link?]
Ultor owns a 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 Chemical and Waste Disposal Plant is destroyed when one of the same planes crashes into the plant.
In "Learning Computer", the objective vehicle towards the end of the mission is transporting a high-tech supercomputer bearing Ultor's logo. The interesting thing is that this computer was originally intended for use by STAG and not the Saints.

- The name Ultor and logo was first used in Volition, Inc.'s first-person shooter Red Faction. Ultor in Red Faction indeed is the same Ultor as in Saints Row series. This means that these series are set in the same universe.[reference?]
- Ultor is Latin for "Avenger." Mars Ultor was an aspect of the Roman God Mars.
- Before becoming a powerhouse, the company was first seen in Saints Row in the form of the Ultor Arena, parts of a clothing line, and purchasable Ultor sunglasses.
- Ultor Unlimited is also a sponsor in the 2009 fighting game UFC Undisputed 2009, allowing the player to put their logo on the trunks.
- Some civilians will be seen giving out hand-outs, if looked at closely, the player can notice the Ultor logo.
- 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 possible hint towards this is a series of Ultor billboards with the Ultor logo and underneath it states: 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.
