I will also go with D but is the use of "THAT" really required here?

I go with D.

I think B needs a comma to be grammatically correct (sounds silly right)

D. more closely integrated than ever before and that

Its a Idiom (more than ever before) + Parallelism

D it is.

Original has a split infinitive?

"integrated more closely" isnt as appealing as " more closely integrated"

and also "that......" and "that......" is a test of parallelism of clauses.

(A) integrated more closely than never before and - we need "ever" instead of "never", and "that" after "and"
(B) closely integrated more than ever before so - badly constructed
(C) more closely integrated as never before while - no good
(D) more closely integrated than ever before and that - nice one
(E) more than ever before closely integrated as - out

(A) integrated more closely than never before and -> Never is not used with before. Never can be used alone. But with before, ever should be used.
(B) closely integrated more than ever before so -> so -> Provides a reason but we are looking for two facts
(C) more closely integrated as never before while -> Never is not used with before. Never can be used alone. But with before, ever should be used.
(D) more closely integrated than ever before and that -> Correct
(E) more than ever before closely integrated as -> as -> Also provides a reason but we don't want a reason but to report facts.
