The VersaLife corp is a multinational company active since the 1970s. It specializes in pharmaceuticals, bioengineering and nanotechnology. VersaLife is a subsidiary of the firm Page Industries, whose owner is Bob Page. Its headquarters is located in Hong Kong, and has other major facilities such as in Roccasecca Beach, off the coast of San Francisco, USA.
The company was founded in 1976 as Versatile Life Solutions. In 1993, one of VersaLife's subsidiaries, White Helix Labs, performed a series of experiments on newborn babies, likely as part of an early attempt to develop augmentation technology. Adam Jensen was the only survivor of this series of experiments, thought lost when his birth parents burnt down the labs.
The years prior to 2000 were described as VersaLife's "golden age", until it went into a sharp decline. Despite this, however, in 2008 it was one of several major biotech companies to participate in biotech research at the controversial Omega Ranch. VersaLife was eventually delisted from the NYSE as it continued to fall in value. This all changed in 2016 when the failing pharmaceutical giant was purchased by the holding company, Page Industries. VersaLife did not start making a profit until it had been acquired by the larger conglomerate.
