Flyability and Foretec Announce a Partnership to Tackle the French Market

Flyability announces its partnership with Foretec which becomes an authorized reseller for Flyability Elios, the collision-tolerant indoor inspection and exploration drone.

 

As a leading company in the field of remote visual inspection solutions (RVI) for Industrial and Security markets, Foretec sells high-quality Visual Testing NDT equipment, including borescopes, videoscopes and inspection cameras to its clients in Nuclear, Oil&Gas, Pharmaceutical, Mining, Transportation and Law Enforcement businesses. Elios, the only indoor and shock tolerant drone is a natural complement to its range of solutions, allowing for inspection of inaccessible places of a wider scale: confined spaces -including tanks, vessels, pipes, ballasts-, boilers, reactors, bridges, structures, and so on.

"We, at Foretec, are very pleased to develop new business with Flyability. With Elios, we’re taking industrial endoscopy (from Greek ‘inspect inside’) to a new level," says Jerome Marron, CEO of Foretec. "Its unique features and innovations will allow our clients to inspect further, faster and in a safer way, bringing their costs down. We think Elios is the right product and we are looking forward to growing its presence in the French market."

Beyond being an aircraft, Elios is primarily a visual inspection tool that seats next to endoscopes, thickness measurement tools, and eddy current testing systems. "Despite the geographical proximity between Switzerland and France, having a partner well introduced locally is key to our expansion on the French market," says Nicolas Busserolle, Channel Manager at Flyability. "With their established network of industrial and law enforcement customers and 40 years of experience in the visual inspection business, Foretec touches already all our customers. We are proud that they see Elios as another string to their bow."

Prospective French customer can rely on the expertise and advice of Foretec to proceed with the acquisition of Elios for their indoor inspection needs. More information is available on their website www.foretec.fr. For those who wish to see Elios in action, it will be demonstrated on French ground at VivaTech 2018 in Paris, France from May 24th to May 26th. Flyability will be performing several demonstrations at Swiss Pavillion booth #E47.
