The Chennai-based drone start-up, Garuda Aerospace, entered into a partnership with HiiLSE Global SdnBhd (HiiLSE Drones), a Malaysian company, to set up the largest plant in the South Asia region once operational, stated the company sources on Wednesday, June 22. The HiiLSE Garuda Aerospace Plant will be made across 2.42 hectares of land, with an investment of ₹115 crores to provide state-of-the-art technology to public and private sectors alike in the whole region.

Thriving Ecosystem For Drone Start-Ups

The Founder-CEO of Garuda Aerospace, Agnishwar Jayaprakash, said the partnership would facilitate a drone ecosystem where artificial intelligence, learning technologies and machine learning can advance. He further noted that once the drone plant becomes operational, it will be the first such plant in Malaysia and the largest in all of South Asia, creating 3,000 job opportunities in the technology and drone sector, as reported by TechCircle.

With its first foreign drone plant on the way, Garuda Aerospace will carve its place as India's most valuable drone start-up and grow steadily in the global market, claimed Jayaprakash.
