If you work in the geospatial industry, you’ve probably noticed that Microdrones has been in the news quite a bit in the last few months. This has been largely due to the progress we’ve been making setting up the distribution network that will get our complete UAV mapping solutions into the hands of surveying, construction, mining, inspection, and precision agriculture professionals around the globe.
In November, Microdrones partnered with Trimble, becoming their preferred provider of quadcopter UAVs. (Our sister company, Delair-Tech, purchased Trimble’s Gatewing UAV business and is now their preferred fixed wing provider.)
Since then, our Trimble Dealer Manager, Phil Kern has been busy traveling the world and working with Trimble dealers, performing demonstrations and helping them to understand the benefits of our mdMapper systems.
Below is the list of Trimble/SITECH dealers that have officially signed on as sellers of Microdrones systems. Many of these dealers have already sold numerous systems and many other dealers are working with us to form partnerships.
These dealers all have a reputation for being the first to bring new geospatial technology to their regions — and we’re proud to be working with them!
