Aerial imagery deal signed

Two Manitoba companies are major players in the new venture

A Manitoba-based John Deere dealership has inked a deal to give customers access to drone services that can generate images used to help make decisions about land and water management.

Enns Brothers joins Saskatchewan-based Western Sales in linking up with Green Aero Tech last month. Green Aero Tech was founded in 2012 in the Red River Valley and today works across Western Canada.

“We’re not drones for the sake of drones,” said Scott Hiebert, CEO of Green Aero Tech. “We tailor our services to the client.”

Hiebert says the service will collect accurate data and work with the dealerships to deliver that information to customers. That includes information like elevation reports related to drainage, multi-spectral imaging for crop stress management, and thermal imaging for research purposes. They’re also working on a special interface for John Deere dealerships to allow the data to interface with existing software.

“Working with Green Aero Tech means we’re capable of delivering solutions to our entire trade area,” said Mitch Rezansoff, Integrated Solutions manager at Enns Brothers. “They’re a trusted extension of our team, putting the latest in drone technology right at our fingertips.”

For Green Aero Tech this deal gives them access to the customer bases of two of Canada’s largest John Deere dealerships.
