Airobotics, a developer of automated drone solutions, launched its North American headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, where it will run all North America, Central America and South America operations.

The opening of the Scottsdale office featured a ceremony and speakers including Ran Krauss, CEO and co-founder of Airobotics; Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority; and Mayor of Scottsdale W.J. Lane.

Headquartered in Israel, Airobotics also has offices and operations in Australia, Chile and New Caledonia. The Scottsdale office is intended to eventually become the company’s global headquarters, according to the company.

Attendees were invited to tour the new facility and watch a demonstration of the company’s automated drone system. Airobotics plans to grow the Scottsdale team to 80 employees by the end of next year, according to the company, focusing on recruiting local technology, operations and sales.

“When deciding where to launch our first US office, Arizona was the top choice for us as it has a strong mining industry, great weather conditions for drone testing and potential partners we’re excited to work with,” says Krauss. “The state and local governments are very supportive of autonomous and aviation technologies and the UAV industry specifically. As we continue to grow our services in the mining industry, we’re excited to have talented professionals in Arizona join our team and help us bring mines and other industrial sites into the digital era.”
