Miguel Zorita buys a majority stake in Drone Spain.
The former president of Deloitte Miguel Zorita has bought Dron Spain through Zima Capital Management.
Captained by Valencian Jaime Guillot, Dron Spain has until now specialised mainly in the audiovisual sector. With contracts as far away as the North Pole, they started up in August 2014, when they decided to create a company to focus on real estate and used drones to photograph villas.
Miguel Zorita wants to use these drones for industrial use as he is already doing in the company Daorje, an Asturian company which provides services to metallurgical groups such as Arcelor Mittal. But Drone Spain is not only dedicated to the use of drones in audiovisual, industry, security and agriculture, they have also started to integrate this technology into companies, buying drones from them and managing their pilot licenses. "This is working very well," says Guillot. In addition to this, they are launching a web platform that links other companies in the sector with clients who demand their services. "In this way we nurture the sector. There are currently 900 drone companies in Spain, compared to 20 a year ago.
Alentia invests 450,000 euros in arbórea intellbird
Arborea Intellbird is a company from Salamanca that has developed a drone (Remotely Manned Aerial System or SARP) that enables inspections to be carried out at altitude in a wide range of sectors such as industrial infrastructures, agriculture and aerial photography.
"The CDTI and Iberdrola had already entered the capital of Arbórea Intellbird in 2014 to boost its launch and now that the company is commercialising its products and services, new investment partners have been sought to underpin the future growth of the company," says Diego Gutierrez of Arbórea Intellbird. Abra-Invest.
Investors in Alentia have decided to invest in Arbórea Intellbird, due to the great potential of the project in the inspection of all types of industrial infrastructures and the entrepreneurial character of its promoter, Carlos Bernabéu.
To carry out the investment, Alentia has created a special purpose vehicle. This type of vehicle provides a number of advantages such as the possibility of accommodating both large and small investors and the gain of negotiating strength against other parties, but also allows individual investors to benefit from the personal income tax deductions implemented by the Junta de Castilla y León in 2013.
