When the DD-13 cybernetic surgical droid line was discontinued after Darth Vader rejected Ubrikkian's renewal contract with the Empire, the company abandoned that model and concentrated on producing a new model of administrative droid. The result was the DD-19, produced from the schematics of the DD-13. This droid would prove to be a profitable item for Ubrikkian.
Designed to process the needs of managing the operations of several droids at once, the DD-19 was capable of monitoring over fifty units of varying types at a time. Field trials, however, proved that fifteen to twenty units was more manageable. As the head of a labor droid pool, the DD-19s had the authority to apply restraining bolts to unruly droids, as well as to remove them.
