Waterloo drone maker Aeryon Labs has opened a second office in Waterloo.

The company says the additional 30,000 square feet will allow it to continue to scale all aspects of its operations, including, R&D, manufacturing, as well as sales and marketing.

“We remain committed to Waterloo Region as our primary base of operations,” Aeryon President & CEO, Dave Kroetsch said. “The world-class talent pool and proximity to other leading technology organizations is highly desirable, and we are confident in our ability to continue to hire and retain top engineering talent.”

The company currently has over 100 employees in Waterloo and has customers in over 35 countries. They are also hiring.

Locally, OPP use Aeryon’s drones for crash scene investigations. Kroetsch says it allows police to clear a crash on the 401 much faster.
