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.”
Kamarul added, “We are proud to welcome Measure’s drone services team into the Aerodyne family. This is not only a testament of our capabilities and proven track record, but a realisation of our dream to transform Aerodyne, a home-grown Malaysian brand, into a truly global company. The sky’s the limit from here on in.”
