Our Growth in the U.S. MarketAugust 13, 2019
It has been a busy summer for everyone at DeveronUAS in the fields and labs but we are excited to also announce our team has expanded further into the US market with the acquisition of Kansas City based Atlas Team (“Atlas”).
The US agriculture sector is almost ten times the size of its Canadian counterpart, comprising over 900 million acres of farmland. The USDA recently estimated that agricultural production from the some two million farms in the United States amount to US$389 billion in total agricultural goods. With average crop farm expenditures topping US$205,000 per farm in the US, a considerable opportunity exists for 10% improvement in yields or reduction in costs from digital solutions.
Scott Jackman, the principal at Atlas, will become the President of Deveron’s US subsidiary. Mr. Jackman spent 22 years in the US Army as an aviation officer. He served multiple tours overseas where he commanded in combat. Scott also led numerous Department of Defense level programs spanning intelligence and operational activity. More recently, he founded Atlas Team which has grown into a precision agriculture and remote sensing company providing support to clients ranging from farmers to multi-national corporations.
Atlas has an established base of operations that immediately expands our current reach throughout the US Midwest. We are also adding an incredible leader in Scott Jackman to our team, who will focus on scaling our digital service offerings throughout the US market. We know data acquisition services and analytics improve return on investment on the farm and are excited to see the growth ahead as our footprint expands.
