KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 5): Aerodyne Group has announced the acquisition of a controlling 60% interest in the services business of Measure UAS Inc, one of the leading aerial intelligence companies in the United States.
Aerodyne, a Malaysian-headquartered international artificial intelliegence (AI)-driven, drone-based solutions, said in a statement today that a new business entity, Aerodyne Measure Inc, has been formed to serve enterprise clients in North America.
Aerodyne Measure brings together the expertise of two leaders in the global drone services industry.
Aerodyne founder and group chief executive officer (CEO) Kamarul A Muhamed said Measure has established quality processes and a reputation for excellent customer service, giving the firm a strong foothold as it expands into the North American market.
“With the drone industry in a consolidation phase where companies which can deliver real value will come out on top, this partnership is a timely move to position us well for the next phase of growth,” he added.
Aerodyne Measure Inc will provide premium, turnkey aerial inspections of infrastructure assets in the energy utilities, renewable energy, oil and gas sectors, as well as roads, bridges and ports, leveraging Aerodyne’s Vertikaliti solution suite, an end-to-end cloud-based asset management solution.
“By combining smart drones and AI, Vertikaliti seamlessly and effectively reinvents the way assets are managed. This solution has been proven to give clients significant performance improvement and cost optimisation,” it said.
CEO and co-founder of Measure, Brandon Torres Declet, said Aerodyne Measure will provide high-quality services to asset managers looking to outsource their drone operations.
“By combining our expertise, we have created a business that will be a market leader from day one,” Declet noted.
This acquisition is part of Aerodyne’s aggressive expansion strategy to become the number one drone-based solution provider in the world.
Declet also joins the Aerodyne Group’s global leadership team, bringing with him his invaluable experience and expertise.
