"Building a better future."
―Company slogan

Weyland Industries was a British industrial business that existed in the twenty-first century. Along with the Japanese Yutani Corporation, it was one of the antecedents to the Weyland-Yutani conglomerate. The eponymous Charles Bishop Weyland was the chairman of Weyland Industries during the early 21st Century.[3]

Weyland Industries.

Weyland Industries' logo is a nod to the Weyland-Yutani logo as seen in Aliens and the subsequent video games based on the film. Likewise, the company's slogan — "Building a Better Future" — is a reference to Weyland-Yutani's tag line — "Building Better Worlds".

According to the Alien vs. Predator novel from author Marc Cerasini, Weyland Industries were worth $375 billion, and, by 2020, were expected to be the first to build a base on Earth's satellite, the Moon.

Merger and Future[]

In 2030, Weyland Industries was headed by a man known only as Mr. Weyland. At this time, Weyland Industries bought out Borgia Industries in a hostile takeover following the death of the latter's senior directors. Sometime after this, Weyland Industries would also acquire the Yutani Corporation, thus forming the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

Behind the scenes[]

Crew members working on Alien vs. Predator were given a blue baseball cap that features the Weyland Industries logo on the front and the stylized "AVP" on the rear. The caps were distressed for style purposes by the original makers of them and a cloth adjuster at the rear allows the cap's size to be adjusted to fit a wide range of head sizes.[4]
