Koensayr Manufacturing was originally founded during the the cordidal reign of the Galactic Republic and operated as a privately owned manufacturing company for decades before the Galactic Civil War. As an independent builder, Koensayr focussed heavily on research and development that would give its products a distinct advantage in an increasingly competitive and hostile market. The R200 Ion Jet was introduced to the public just a few short years before Supreme Chancellor Drayson seized control of the Republic.
The R200 Ion Jet was an Ion Fission Engine designed specifically for the BTL-A4 Y-Wing Star Fighter. The engines were an engineering marvel at the time of their release, easily out performing many of its competitors, such as the 2A Fission engine from Incom Corporation. Turbo modified with articulated disk-ventrals set into the head of the engine nacelles redirected the R200's ion thrust for unparalleled agility and speed. The combination of an incredibly well armored and heavy assault fighter chassis and a revolutionary powerful engine created a legendary star fighter that served the original Galactic Republic well into, and through to the end of the Civil War.
Unfortunately, with the formation of the Galactic Empire, fleet doctrines for militaries across the galaxy began to rapidly change. Massive Capital ships with short range fighter escorts became the norm and demand for hyperspace equipped star fighters plummeted due to their cost. Shifting economic certainties also created unstable markets around the rest of the galaxy and demand for 'the best of the best' dwindled until 'good enough' was all most of the galaxy could afford. As such, Koensayr went bankrupt and the plans for the Y-Wing were sold on the open market, eventually secured by their competition.
What remained of Koensayr's limited assets, real estate and intellectual properties was purchased by a Free Company known as' 'The eXiles' ' in year 13. Under the ownership of the eXiles, Koensayr was tasked with lending its expertise and knowledge to produce warships for an increasingly expanding military behind the eXiles. At the end of Year 19, and through year 20, Koensayr Manufacturing was joined by Aeyris Manufacturing, owned by Raptor Cardel, a master shipwright of his own renown. Aeyris Manufacturing brought increased staff and experience, but also shipyards and other facilities in the Vahaba Asteroid Belt. The two companies merged and Aeyris manufacturing gave up it's name. Now run by Raptor Cardel, Koensayr Manufacturing secured its independence once more and created a focus on being a boutique 'Built to Order' company. Koensayr was contracted by the Cooperative, a Government located in Hypori and Rannon during Year 20 to provide Exclusive Manufacturing rights for both the military and the commercial arms of the Cooperative Government. This contract proved incredibly important to the re-establishment of Koensayr as it was both lucrative and educational, providing the experience of producing thousands of ships and managing a company that had grown to a workforce of over ten thousand.
The Cooperative however, would not endure as the government eventually failed. During its reformation, Koensayr cut ties with the government entirely. Koensayr Manufacturing had been bankrupted once before by a foreign government, and it refused to do so again. Helmed by Raptor Cardel, Koensayr Manufacturing is now an entirely family owned boutique builder, operating primarily out of the Vahaba Asteroid Belt. Re-established, research and development has once more taken center stage. Koensayr aims to once more assert itself as a dominant force in the galactic market and it appears well on the path to being so.
