Arakyd Industries, also known as Arakyd Industries Droid Manufacturers, was a premiere manufacturer of droids, heavy weapons, and starships. Formed on Year 2 Day 108 by Choibacco, Ann Yael and Hobo Raff, the organization described itself as "a group of honest hard-working people frustrated with poor business practices, bribery, back-stabbing, self-appointed tinpot dictators and egomaniacs." Following its dissolution, a later organization bearing its title appeared in Year 11 formed by businesswoman Helena Gladio.
Arakyd Industries was a splinter group of Sarin Incorporated, an earlier company founded by Bothan entrepreneur Sarin Boda on Year 1 Day 197. The majority of employees in Sarin Inc. were ex-members of the Bounty Hunter Alliance (BHA) and had departed the latter collective due to a disagreement with the high command. Once Sarin Inc. was founded, Choibacco was appointed by Sarin Boda to be the Vice President of the company.
Unfortunately, a rift soon occurred between Sarin Boda and Choibacco. This rift caused a large portion of the membership to egress with Choibacco. Purchasing the inactive Droid Engineering company, Choibacco formed Arakyd Industries from its ashes. As such, Arakyd Industries was founded on Year 2 Day 108 by Choibacco, Jerome Antilles, Ann Yael and Hobo Raff. The company is believed to have thrived for at least a year before falling into disarray.
During the company's brief tenure, Choibacco and Ann Yael fell in love and were married in a lavish Hapan wedding hosted by King Jessy James. Arakyd Industries is believed to have dissolved shortly afterward circa Year 3 when Choibacco was appointed Governor of Dathomir and resurrected The Antarian Rangers.
