DRONAMICS announces partnership with Quickstep for full-scale cargo drone manufacturing


Quickstep becomes the first strategic manufacturing partner of DRONAMICS

The partnership will accelerate the scale-up of the Dronamics fleet to meet the growing demand for capacity on their routes

The turnkey solution with Australia’s largest independent aerospace composites business will see the first units land in 2023 

DRONAMICS, the leading middle-mile cargo drone developer and operator, announced its first strategic manufacturing partnership at the Farnborough International Airshow today. DRONAMICS will be working with Quickstep Holdings Limited, a tier one manufacturer and the largest independent aerospace composites business in Australia, trusted by the world’s leading aerospace companies. 

The turnkey solution partnership will help accelerate the production of the DRONAMICS cargo drones. With the first units landing in 2023, the long-term plan targets the ramp-up of production of hundreds of Black Swan cargo drones annually in the next four years. 

The agreement comes at a key time as DRONAMICS recently became the first cargo drone company to obtain a European drone airline license, and is gearing up to launch commercial operations in Europe before the end of this year before entering Australia in 2023.  

The manufacturing will take place in Quickstep’s Australian facilities, globally recognised for their innovative engineering and premium manufacturing capabilities and trusted by the world’s most advanced aerospace players. 

Konstantin Rangelov, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of DRONAMICS, says:“The first strategic manufacturing partnership is a key milestone in our mission to enable same-day delivery for everyone, everywhere. As an innovator who is challenging the status quo in cargo mobility, we are thrilled to have the support of an experienced partner like Quickstep to help us realize the full potential of our solution.”

Mark Burgess, Quickstep Chief Executive Officer, said “Quickstep shares Dronamics passion for innovation and this is an exciting partnership. We are delighted to be taking their Black Swan aircraft from prototype to production. The Dronamics solution could well revolutionize the middle-mile cargo delivery sector and this partnership gives Quickstep the opportunity to provide our engineering and manufacturing expertise in delivering a large sophisticated cargo drone.  This is also a great opportunity to advance the Australian aerospace sector, something we are very passionate about.”
