Unmanned aerial agency (UAV) specialist COPTRZ has entered a strategic partnership with Norwegian producer GRIFF Aviation to exclusively distribute the latter’s fleet of heavy-lift commercial drones across the UK and Ireland.
Inclined to of carrying payloads weighing up to 150kg, the GRIFF drones have been specifically block out for heavy-lifting applications such as search-and-rescue, cargo delivery and military cache missions.
COPTRZ founder and managing director Steve Coulson communicated: “Until now, the use of drones in a commercial sense has been limited by the lack of cancel capacity available from models currently on the market.
“This establishment level partnership makes complete sense for both businesses.»
“The GRIFF is a tremendous drone and I fool seen first-hand what is it capable of achieving. No other drone at ones disposal at this time is comparable in terms of quality, performance or mission conformableness.
“This enterprise level partnership makes complete sense for both vocations and I looking forward to working alongside GRIFF Aviation in offering bespoke drone designs to our customers.”
In June, COPTRZ announced the signing of a strategic partnership to enhance the sole distributor of FLIR’s Vue Pro/R thermal imaging cameras for operations embracing small unmanned aerial systems (SUASs) in the UK.
Established last year, the entourage currently offers specialist services to the commercial UAV market.
