Israeli drone maker Airobotics on Monday said it was moving its manufacturing to the United States to meet growing demand in the US, Australia and other areas in Asia-Pacific.
As a result, its production line in Israel will shut down and about 20 employees will be laid off. Some of them have been offered to relocate to its new global headquarters in Arizona, while Airobotics said it planned to expand its US staff.
Airobotics’ research and development center will remain in Israel.
The Company noted that it was in a period of “hyper-growth” and strong demand in mining, inspection, and construction.
In November, Airobotics announced it was relocating most of its operations, including its global headquarters, to Scottsdale, Arizona.
