Wingtra is set to open a new office on the US East Coast by the end of 2018, as it plans to further its expansion in the Americas.
The Swiss drone company develops and manufactures professional VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drones for mapping and surveying applications.
The new office will create a number of new jobs in the area, with Wingtra particularly on the lookout for sales and support staff.
Maximillian Boosfeld, CEO of Wingtra, said: “We are taking this initiative to be closer to our US customers and with greater presence through overcoming time-zone differences and offering a deeper network of support in the Americas.”
He added: “Despite our background in robotics, we want to ensure a human element in communication between us and our customers. This is a key reason for opening a new office in the US. We look forward to adding more skilled Wingtranauts to our team who would complement the current headquarters in Zurich.”
The exact location of the new office has not been decided yet.
