Billings, MT–February 21, 2019–Swiss-based Wingtra, the leader of professional VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) surveying drones, and RDO Integrated Controls, a division of RDO Equipment Co., one of the largest Topcon dealers in the US, are excited to announce the rollout of the first Wingtra “Certified Repair Center.”
The agreement between the two companies further enhances RDO Integrated Controls’ customer support to a growing Wingtra customer base. Specifically, the training and certification process recently delivered by Wingtra will greatly reduce downtime when repairs or maintenance is required across RDO Integrated Controls’ territory, which includes the upper Midwest, Pacific Northwest, and Southwest.
Along with advanced technical training, the agreement will see strategic warehousing of Wingtra systems and components across RDO Integrated Controls’ regions.
“This is a monumental step in our joint efforts to not only deliver the best professional VTOL surveying drone available, but to also provide our customers with unbeatable long-term support,” said Scott McTavish, North American Sales Manager at Wingtra. “Our advanced aerial surveying platform is enhancing the industrial workspace in so many ways. We are fortunate to have a partner in RDO who shares our values of caring for our end users. Rapid response and local support is key to user satisfaction.”
“The addition of the Certified Repair and Service Center is the next logical step in our winning relationship with Wingtra,” Brad Reich, Service Operations Manager for RDO Integrated Controls, said. “RDO and Wingtra can now provide UAV customers with the best service and support in the North American market.”
