SuSAG Corporation established their first factory operation in the Dug system in 832 to avoid the Psionics Suppressions. This factory was to manufacture then illegal psi drugs. The operation has since expanded into other areas of drugs and chemicals, and includes a large R & D operation that is quasi-legal at best.
