We have many Japanese customers who require more services by UAV Lidar: civil engineering, mapping, infrastructure and especially disaster recovery, as we have a lot of natural disasters. In this case, we need a quick and flexible service. Now, I can provide even better support for Japanese customers and extend business with YellowScan Japan.”

Pierre d’Hauteville, YellowScan principal and head of sales & marketing, is very excited about this expansion to better support the Japanese customers: “Having Shinji Inaba leading the expansion of our company in Japan is a great asset.

The expansion will allow YellowScan to continuously serve its growing list of customers within Japan with exceptional local and tailored services for this market. Shinji Inaba will continue to lead Mirukuru’s operations. Mirukuru is providing world-class aerial technical products and services.
