Drone Aviation Manufacturing Grows to Meet Increasing Demand
Drone Aviation Holding, a manufacturer of tethered drones recognized in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program for Best Persistent Aerial Monitoring Solution, is increasing its production capacity through a new partnership with an established ISO 9001-certified manufacturer and planned expansion of operations in Florida.
Following being selected by a prime contractor under an initial $3.8 million award, Drone Aviation has secured contract manufacturing operations at an ISO 9001-certified partner who will support the Company to meet its customer’s delivery schedules throughout 2019.
To accommodate potential growth, the new contract manufacturing facility has access to over 100,000 square feet of additional production and warehousing space, including flight testing facilities.
Proprietary manufacturing, software and electronics design, final assembly, as well as systems integration, will continue to take place at Drone Aviation’s headquarters in Jacksonville, Florida, and the facility will support additional engineering and product assembly operations required to fulfill obligations under the recently awarded contract.
Drone Aviation also intends to expand its manufacturing capacity through the lease of an additional facility in Florida.
“Supported by new funding, strategic investments in ISO-certified contract manufacturing, the expansion of our facilities and the recruitment of experienced personnel, we are reshaping our company into one able to scale-up to the potential we see ahead of us and meet the demands of our current, new and future customers,” said Jay Nussbaum, Chairman and CEO of Drone Aviation.
