Nigerian Company, Elites Logistics & Development Services Ltd, To Launch Unmanned UAV And Drone Assembly And Production Line
In a ground-breaking move to address security challenges and stimulate economic growth, Elites Group of Companies, an indigenous Nigerian company, has announced the commencement of an assembly and production line for Unmanned Vehicles (UAVs), drones, and other security equipment within Nigeria. This strategic initiative follows a significant agreement with foreign Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) partners.
The Group Managing Director of Elites Logistics & Development Services Ltd, Otunba David Adesanya, disclosed the company’s ambitious undertaking. He emphasized that the establishment of the assembly and production line represents a pivotal step toward improving security infrastructure in Nigeria, contributing to the modern manufacturing industry, and generating various socio-economic benefits for our great nation and the African continent.
One of the primary objectives of this initiative is to significantly reduce the extended delivery time that has been associated with waiting for foreign equipment manufacturing companies to produce and deliver drones to Nigerian clients. By assembling and producing these drones locally, Elites Logistics & Development Services Ltd aims to provide a swifter response to the security challenges facing the nation by making a wide range of technology solutions available for surveillance, reconnaissance, and other purposes.
Additionally, this endeavour is set to create job opportunities for the country’s large pool of unemployed youth, thereby contributing to a reduction in unemployment rates. It is anticipated that this initiative will not only bolster Nigeria’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) but also enhance foreign exchange earnings, as Elites Group plans to export its UAVs and drones to countries in need of these vital security tools.
Elites Logistics & Development Services Ltd is a proudly Nigerian company with diverse business interests in various sectors, including Agro-Allied Services, Renewable Energy, Solar Smart Kiosk Production, Roads and Building Construction, Engineering Services, Defence Consultancy and procurement Services. With an extensive network of partners spanning European, American, Middle Eastern, and Asian countries, the company is well-positioned to harness its global expertise to advance Nigeria’s technological innovation and economic growth.
This ambitious project reflects the forward-thinking approach of the Group Managing Director, Otunba David Adesanya, and its commitment to fostering self-reliance and economic prosperity within Nigeria, while simultaneously addressing pressing security concerns. As the assembly and production line for UAV drones takes shape, all eyes are on this indigenous company as it steps into a pioneering role within the aerospace industry.
