USIA is an American corporation established in 1987 as a manufacturing firm mainly involved in defense contracting. In 1989 the first recreational diving suits were offered to a select few diving retailers due to an increased demand for quality recreational dry suits.
USIA headquarters and the manufacturing facility are located in a large compound in Oregon State. The facility includes administrative offices, shipping, production area, testing and quality assurance department, research and development department and training compound. Our offices are open 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, Pacific Standard Time, Monday through Friday.
Our dry suits and thermal wear protective undergarments are the result of many years of extensive design and development. The USIA dive team has conducted hundreds of dives in every kind of environment and under extreme conditions. Almost every branch of the U.S. Military have purchased our dry suits, Most of these groups have re-ordered our products due to the integrity of our dry suit systems and the durability of the suit and undergarment.
