QuestUAV targets Chinese market with BTBT
Beijing Topcon Business and Trade (BTBT) has entered a partnership with QuestUAV to supply and support the latter's UAVs in China, QuestUAV announced on 3 November.
The companies are looking to tap into increasing demand for mobile imaging and survey instruments in China and BTBT feels confident it is well positioned to provide fixed-wing capabilities to some 10,000 potential users – backed by the production, training and service experience of QuestUAV, which is based in the UK.
BTBT has facilities across China and will support local users with training and maintenance requirements.
QuestUAV has already arranged for the first shipment of Q-100 DATAhawk and Q-200 Surveyor systems to China and BTBT is expecting to demonstrate them at fairs later in the year.
Michael Clemmet, QuestUAV, said: ‘We look for resellers and partners that are active in their region and that form close relationships with their clients. We value working relationships on this level. In terms of corporate responsibility, safety and reliability in operation are the watchwords we stand by when flying and training others to fly our airframes.'
