Aquabotix Technology Corporation has added five new distributors to its global network as it builds the availability of its products worldwide.
The partnerships are designed to support the company’s global expansion and sale of its underwater robotics products, including its Endura ROV (remotely operated vehicle), Integra AUV/ROV (autonomous underwater vehicle/remotely operated vehicle) and AquaLens Connect underwater camera system.
To date, Aquabotix has sold more than 400 vehicles in nearly 60 countries worldwide.
“Our new distributors bring unique industry expertise to our business, and knowledge about many of our primary markets, including aquaculture and defense,” said Ted Curley, chief development officer at Aquabotix.
“They will be essential partners for Aquabotix as we further expand our channels to sale throughout the world and target new regions impacted by the growing underwater drone market.”
Aquabotix’s latest distributors include SBS Teknikk AS, which will represent Aquabotix in Norway, Denmark and Sweden. It specialises in connecting fish farms with smart technology solutions, providing farms with a live underwater view from multiple locations simultaneously.
ROMOR Atlantic, meanwhile, will represent Aquabotix in Canada. It distributes oceanographic, offshore oil and gas, geophysical and defense instrumentation from manufacturers around the world.
Aquatech Services will represent Aquabotix in Australia and New Zealand, while Seismic Asia Pacific Pty will offer it a presence within Australia and throughout South East Asia and the Pacific Rim. The company also provides hardware and software equipment and system solutions to local government, defense and resource specific sectors.
Finally, Hydro Systems Development will distribute Aquabotix’s products in Japan. Hydro Systems specialises in the development of underwater sensing systems for both the marine and in-land water sectors. The company is the 10th new distributor appointed by Aquabotix within the past four months.
“We are excited to grow our network of distributors who will work to increase Aquabotix’s brand and presence globally,” said David Batista, CEO of Aquabotix. “With these recent additions, we look forward to reaching a wider range of users and suppliers across multiple sectors, while ensuring our underwater products and vehicles meet our customers’ respective needs.”
