Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALPP), a leading operator and owner of small market businesses announced today that its subsidiary, Vayu Aerospace Corporation (VAYU) and ENSCO have entered into a procurement agreement to acquire the US-1 drone for its operations in the United States. Vayu has developed several use case applications for the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, Border Patrol, and several industrial sectors including rail and energy.
Vayu’s President, TK Eppley commented, “When I was hired 9 months ago, I was tasked with building out a drone production facility. As we sell through our remaining US-1’s, we continue to progress on the development of the US-2 and have created the capabilities to manufacture G1 aircraft faster than ever before. It’s incredibly gratifying to be fulfilling orders and to be doing business with a company of Ensco’s caliber.”
Kent Wilson, CEO of Alpine 4, had this to say, “TK and his team have done a great job professionalizing the airframes Vayu offers. When we hired TK last summer, we made the decision to proactively remove all Chinese electrical components from our drones. This process has led us to a point where we are actively selling our airframes to customers like Ensco and are able to provide airframes to the US government and companies that need a true US manufactured and component sourced product. We congratulate TK and his team for a job well done!”
ENSCO is a provider of engineering, science, and advanced technology equipment for the defense, security, transportation, and aerospace industries.
