Co-Operative Industries Aerospace & Defense (CIA&D) has recently been acquired by the kSARIA Corporation. CIA&D will continue to support its customers with the exceptional service that they are accustomed to, but now as a division of kSARIA.

We expect a very smooth integration that will enable us to stay focused on serving all of our stakeholders.”

David S. Symonds, President and CEO of CIA&D, said: “We are very proud of CIA&D’s long and successful history of supporting the aerospace and defense industry.
