RIEGL takes aim at Australia’s UAV sector with new office

By on 24 January, 2019

RIEGL announces expansion of their global presence in Australia and Oceania by opening a Queensland office focused primarily on the airborne/UAV market.

The new office will provide direct RIEGL representation throughout Australia and New Zealand, offering full support to its existing RIEGL distributors in Australia, C.R. Kennedy, and in New Zealand, Geospace.

Glenne Blyth has moved over from distributor C.R. Kennedy to helm the new office.

“The laser scanning market in our local region has grown from strength to strength in recent years,” Blyth said. “With a booming resource sector and rapid population growth fueling a spike in infrastructure development and construction, spatial data consumption has never been greater.”

While the new office will focus on the airborne/UAV sectors, RIEGL representatives say the local partners will continue to drive terrestrial and mobile products into various industries in the market.
