Drone-based aerial intelligence solution provider Kespry, working out of California, has announced a successful ongoing partnership with aggregates and ready mix producers and crushing operator McMurry Ready Mix.
The Wyoming-based McMurry has facilities across the state, and boasts a large fleet of construction equipment and trucks, meeting both private and public needs.
Kespry enhances McMurry’s mine mapping and inventory management with its touchless, drone-based aerial intelligence platform.
In 2019 McMurry completed successful 270 flights with Kespry.
“We needed Kespry because of its ability to help us control inventory and ensure it was accurate, so we could manage costs,” said Rob Jongsma, general manager, McMurry Ready Mix.
He continued: “We crush 1.2-1.5 million tons of materials a year. We sell approximately that much every year, too. So, it’s a million tons in and a million tons out.
“That’s a lot of assets to have on the books and it’s really important to keep those inventory numbers accurate for sales forecasts and management.
“We use Kespry a lot. And the great thing is, whether we use it 30 or 300 times in a year, the cost to us doesn’t change.
“The value is really in taking advantage of the system and using it to its full ability.
“I personally haven’t found anything better than working with Kespry to manage the volume of inventory we do. The convenience and accuracy really helps us. Kespry’s drone technology is where it’s at.”
