Delair opens UAS maintenance centres in US
Delair has expanded its customer service operations with the qualification and opening of its first two UAS repair and maintenance centres in the US, the company announced on 28 January.
The company has partnered with Frontier Precision and Seiler Instrument to provide comprehensive customer support for its UX11 mapping and survey UAS.
Delair worked with technicians from both firms to certify them on the latest maintenance and repair processes. Seiler's training took place at Delair’s manufacturing facility in Toulouse, France.
Delair also worked with the service providers to ensure each has a sufficient inventory of parts and spares, as well as the required tooling to perform repair and maintenance on the specific Delair UAS models.
Seiler Instrument, which has been a reseller of Delair UAS for several years, operates a service and repair facility in Saint Louis, Missouri where it will support the Delair UX11.
Frontier Precision, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Denver, Colorado, will provide local expert service to its US customer base.
