Teesside drone company DJM Aerial Solutions has celebrated its first year in full-time business – a 12-month period director Dan Maine says the company took its fleet of hi-spec drone technology “from the ordinary to the extraordinary”.
With assistance from both Tees Valley Business Compass and Digital City, DJM has expanded its fleet to increase the firm’s service offerings from standard high-level remote inspection to confined space and internal survey.
DJM Aerial Solutions have secured clients across not only heavy industry but the construction, infrastructure and creative sectors.
The firm already has an enviable client portfolio, from blue-chip companies such as BOC, Siemens and Ineos to exciting collaborations with well-established Teesside firms including RAK Inspection and Ithica Films.
Director Dan said: “It’s been an exciting year for us. We’ve been operational for two years in April but I continued rotational employment within the oil and gas industry until December 2017.
“Things didn’t really pick up until I took the plunge into full-time status, allowing us to give the business our full attention – and the risk has paid off.”
Since going full-time, engineer Dan has been able to provide a service to companies across the UK using his technical expertise developed during a 20-year career within a heavy industrial environment.
DJM’s main offerings are high level visual or thermal surveys of assets using their high-specification equipment. With a recent investment in a drone encapsulated within a gyroscopic protective cage, they are now able to offer the same level of services within internal environments, such as storage tanks and vessels.
“We needed to differentiate ourselves from the competition and we’re now able to do so,” added Dan. “There aren’t many companies in the UK offering the same services we are, so we look forward to seeing further growth in 2019.”
