Mobilicom is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic partnership with leading drone manufacturer, Yuneec International, for the purpose of releasing joint drone solutions that will incorporate the SkyHopper by Mobilicom product suite.
Yuneec International is the second largest manufacturer of electronic aviation and drones for Yuneec’s consumer and commercial target markets. Part-owned by Intel which has invested heavily in the business, Yuneec sells more than one million units per annum and operates across five sites worldwide since being founded in 1999.
Under this strategic partnership, Yuneec will release two drone platforms for the commercial and government markets based on SkyHopper by Mobilicom product offerings. Mobilicom expects sales of the platforms to commence during 2019, which Yuneec will deliver using its large worldwide sales channels.
In addition to sales impact, this creates an excellent opportunity for Mobilicom as the SkyHopper product suite is exposed to key target markets and customers.
Mobilicom’s CEO Oren Elkayam commented:
“As an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for Yuneec’s commercial and government drone solution, our sales will be strengthened by leveraging the magnitude of Yuneec as a company as well as its worldwide sales channels.
“As a growing giant in the drone industry, to have the opportunity to work alongside Yuneec is an indication of the high-quality products and technology Mobilicom is delivering.”
Leading Yuneec’s global sales and marketing operations, VP Global Sales Joe Schamuhn commented:
“Partnering with Mobilicom and leveraging its best-in-class SkyHopper technology will enable us to target the commercial and government markets more effectively. We believe the collaboration will result in a long-term relationship which offers significant opportunity for value creation.”
The SkyHopper-based commercial and government drone solution offerings from Yuneec will be commercially available beginning Q2 2019.
