DRONAMICS Partners with Quickstep for Cargo Drone Manufacturing
DRONAMICS has announce its very first strategic manufacturing partnership with Quickstep Holdings Limited, a tier one manufacturer and the largest independent aerospace composites business in Australia.
This turnkey solution partnership will help DRONAMICS accelerate the production of the Black Swan cargo drones. With the first units landing in 2023, long-term plans target the ramp-up of production of hundreds of Black Swan cargo drones annually in the next four years.
The agreement comes at a key time as it recently became the first cargo drone company to obtain a European drone airline license.
The manufacturing will take place in Quickstep’s Australian facilities, globally recognised for their innovative engineering and premium manufacturing capabilities and trusted by the world’s most advanced aerospace players.
Konstantin Rangelov, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of DRONAMICS said: "The first strategic manufacturing partnership is a key milestone in our mission to enable same day delivery for everyone, everywhere.
"As an innovator who is challenging the status quo in cargo mobility, we are thrilled to have the support of an experienced partner like Quickstep to help us realize the full potential of our solution.”
Mark Burgess, Quickstep, Chief Executive Officer said: "Quickstep shares Dronamics passion for innovation and this is an exciting partnership. We are delighted to be taking their Black Swan aircraft from prototype to production.
"The Dronamics solution could well revolutionize the middle-mile cargo delivery sector and this partnership gives Quickstep the opportunity to provide our engineering and manufacturing expertise into delivering a large sophisticated cargo drone.
"This is also a great opportunity to advance the Australian aerospace sector, something we are very passionate about.”
