The Hon. James Moore, minister of Industry Canada, officially opened the Ottawa–Orléans the new 4,000-square-foot office, which houses sales, R&D, marketing, and operations production.
“We are excited to officially open our new facility in Ottawa,” ING Robotic Aviation’s CEO Ian Glenn said. “This gives a focal point for our production and operations as well as a home for the back room functions. What it represents is the further development of a home-grown high-tech company that is already developing technology, creating jobs and exporting products. This is another step in our move into the commercial market.”
Industry Canada, through The National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP), supports ING Robotic Aviation and its development of robotic aircraft systems, which is why the Minister of Industry was on hand to officially open the facility.
“Our government’s top priority is creating jobs and opportunities in our communities. That’s why we have steadily increased direct support for research and development to help Canadian companies commercialize their innovative products throughout the planet,” Moore said.
