Why Strategic Partnerships?

ABJ provides drone services all around the world. It achieves this via a combination of in-house resources as well as highly qualified Strategic Alliances / Partners. ABJ is looking to further develop their global services capability. In order to achieve this in the most effective way a local footprint, local knowledge and skills are essential. Strategic Partners bring a depth of understanding in the areas of trading and provision of services in the region or area of expertise that they operate in. This is invaluable knowledge to a company establishing itself in a new area. In addition to this the Strategic Partners will also bring a new network of relationships to both parties that ABJ’s drone services can provide significant benefit too.

What is a Strategic Partnership?

A Strategic Partnership can be achieved either through a Joint Venture or a Sub-Licence agreement with ABJ Drones. It is typically awarded to manage a geographical region, country or in a specific area of expertise (e.g. Offshore, Renewable Energy, Infrastructure, Telecommunications, etc.). The Strategic Alliance will allow the partner to extend its’ service offering both internally to vastly improve it’s own data gathering, time and resource management capabilities as well as extending these services to its’ customer base – generating additional revenue, attracting new customers and solidifying further existing relationships.

ABJ’s Strategic Partners come in a number of shapes and sizes. However, they all have one thing in common: Strategic Partners are looking to maximise the operational efficiencies within their own business whilst at the same time offering additional highly efficient, cost saving services via drone solutions to both their existing customers and to attract new customers.

Examples of Strategic Partnerships

  • A large Asian based Industrial Conglomerate providing Operational & Maintenance services to the mining and infrastructure sectors
  • A medium sized South American Drone Services company that wanted to provide additional leading technologies to it’s diverse client base. In addition, it required a structured growth and training mechanism to allow for continued and sustainable expansion.
  • A global Renewable Energy Business that wished to adopt drone lead technologies to improve it’s internal Operational & maintenance capabilities as well as improving its’ solutions offering to its’ client base.
  • A medium sized Indian based business that required improved capabilities to expand its’ franchise across the entire sub-continent.
