The Corporation Internationale et Ocenaique (CINO) is a leading producer of nautical equipment and shipping technology. They gained a major market share in the industry when they unveiled their first line of cargo transport submarines in 2029.
The company is headquartered in Le Havre, France with nearly 65,000 employees worldwide. In late 2040, they got into a bidding war with OTEC over the stock of now defunct IHAG. Rumors are starting to fly of a potential corporate war. This rumor is bolstered by the fact that CINO has signed a security contact with Arasaka.
The competition for IHAG stock escalated into all out war. The war waged for several weeks until a treaty was signed in February 27th, 2041, with no clear winner.
