Microdrones to transfer part of its R&D and Manufacturing Activities to Huntsville, AL
Following the product launch of the EasyOne mid-year, Microdrones will start manufacturing this system in its Huntsville, AL site in 2024. In order to better support the ramp up of manufacturing activities as well as current and future U.S. customer needs, Microdrones will further transfer key R&D activities to Huntsville.
According to Vivien Hériard Dubreuil, CEO of mdGroup (parent company of Microdrones), “Strengthening our existing operations in the U.S. is a natural move for us. Our group has a longstanding presence in Huntsville, and we have been supporting Microdrones U.S. customers from Huntsville for the past 18 months. Now, in light of the energy of the drone surveying market in the U.S. and a strong reception by U.S. customers, it makes sense to bring these functions closer to those customers. We were already selling NDAA-compliant versions of our products; now our products will be designed and made in the U.S.”
Vincent Legrand, VP of Sales added, “In everything we do, our utmost priority is to meet and fully address our customer needs. The EasyOne is born from customer demand for a compact drone LiDAR surveying system that can be easily deployed while quickly delivering high quality results. With a uniquely compact form factor, perfectly integrated LiDAR, our LP360 point cloud processing software as well as NDAA compliant options made in the United States, customers now have exactly what they have been asking for.”
