HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Valmie Resources Inc. (OTCBB:VMRI) today reported significant progress during the first six months of 2016 and revealed exciting planned initiatives for the months ahead.
Valmie is an emerging high tech solutions company focusing on the rapid commercialization of leading edge unmanned aerial system (UAS) technologies and solutions. The company announced in February that it secured a sought-after 333 Exemption to commercially operate unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s). The company is currently in talks with a quality assurance company for performing flare stack inspections using Valmie’s authorized UAV’s.
As part of its aggressive expansion campaign this year, Valmie entered into a partnership with AeroLift eXpress. AeroLift is an elite unmanned transportation service that focuses on the offshore sector and uses military grade vehicles and systems. Following a highly successful debut in May at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, the two companies began building momentum by introducing their groundbreaking unmanned delivery platform to the offshore community.
One of the projects under consideration is collaboration with an international contractor that supports major providers throughout Latin America. Following an extended meeting at OTC, the contractor’s president invited AeroLift to Brazil to discuss adding AeroLift to its portfolio to aid in the performance of a contract with a major oil and gas client.
Valmie and AeroLift are also in talks with a Lagos-based company to perform pipeline surveillance and inspections.
Following a number of successful meetings with numerous U.S. offshore operations companies, AeroLift has begun the process of obtaining Federal Aviation Administration permission to hold a live demonstration at a safe site for these and other companies.
This month, the CEO of AeroLift, James Stafford, travelled to Arizona where he met with the company’s drone hardware manufacturer to discuss the delivery timetable and the process for scheduling an initial order.
“We are extremely proud of our accomplishments so far this year and confident that Valmie will continue the momentum in the months ahead,” said Gerald B. Hammack, President and CEO of Valmie Resources. “We are particularly enthusiastic about events taking place in August and invite shareholders and the public to stay connected for a lot of exciting news!”
In August, AeroLift will join other influentials as a speaker at this year’s Hurricanes, Major Disasters, Coastal Protection, and Rapid Recovery Conference at the University of Houston.
Strategic partnerships have played an important role in Valmie’s growth objectives, and Vertitek, another Valmie acquisition, is poised to become a frontrunner in one of sport’s newest and most exciting fields, drone racing. Vertitek recently established a new division, Vertitek Racing, which specializes in fabricating and selling racing frames for the competitive drone racing industry.
