Schiebel, a developer of Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Air Systems (UAS), has announced that it has founded Schiebel Pacific Pty Ltd (SPL) to provide the Pacific region with a permanent and comprehensive programme, logistics and sales hub.

The Schiebel Group, with already established Defence contracts in the region, sees considerable further potential in Australia and in the region at large, and as such is committed to developing a lasting and mutually beneficial presence. Strategically located between Canberra and Sydney in the Shoalhaven, New South Wales, Schiebel Pacific Pty Ltd (SPL) is perfectly positioned to support and service existing contracts as well as to provide a base for continued growth. This new additional Schiebel company is an essential step to supporting and contributing to local industry, both in the civil and defence sectors, and as such bringing jobs and revenue to the region in the fast growing market or robotics.

“Establishing a permanent base in Australia, managed and run by Australians, is a logical next step for Schiebel as the Pacific region is of significant strategic interest to us,” notes Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group. “We already have a strong working relationship with customers in the area and are committed to growing our footprint, delivering outstanding support for our current contracts, providing end-to-end servicing to potential clients, and backing local value creation.”
