Malaysian based drone company, Aerodyne with its American regional headquarters Aerodyne Measure has entered into a joint venture agreement with The Sky Guys, Canada’s top drone operator for inspections, surveying, and mapping. With this agreement, the DT3 (Drone Tech, Data Tech and Digital Transformation) company, Aerodyne Group, will extend its portfolio of AI-driven enterprise drone solutions to potential customers in Canada.
Having served more than 600 clients across a wide range of sectors, The Sky Guys is ranked among the top 20 drone operators globally by Drone Industry Insights, a leading source for independent drone market intelligence.
Specialising in automating complex, recurring operations that are required for compliance and growth, the UAV company employs more than 300 drone pilots in its network across Canada and the United States.
The experience and expertise of The Sky Guys will add tremendous value to both Aerodyne Group and Aerodyne Measure as it solidifies its position as the leading provider of premium, turnkey aerial inspection solutions in North America.
Aerodyne combines smart drones and powerful AI data analytics to provide an end-to-end cloud-based asset management solution – vertikaliti – to businesses across industries, including energy, utilities, renewables, oil and gas, solar, and infrastructure. The company has raised US30 million in a series B funding last year and has been on the radar of many high profile investment groups since. Potential for Aerodyne to become the first Malaysian unicorn is increasingly there as the group continues to expand its footprint across the globe.
