Airobotics, an Israeli automated drone company, announced Tuesday it will open its North American headquarters at 8340 E. Raintree Drive in Scottsdale.
The company, which also has offices in Australia, Chile and New Caledonia, plans to create 80 jobs in Scottsdale by the end of 2019.
Airobotics’ first U.S. customer will be BHP, the world’s largest mining company.
“When deciding where to launch our first US office, Arizona was the top choice for us as it has a strong mining industry, great weather conditions for drone testing, and potential partners we’re excited to work with,” Airobotics CEO Ran Krauss said.
The company held an opening ceremony Tuesday at its Scottsdale offices, where attendees could tour the facility and observe drone demos.
