A Florida company is partnering with a Wahpeton company to manufacture unmanned aerial vehicles in North Dakota.
"This agreement represents an important milestone in our ongoing work to grow North Dakota's UAS industry," said Gov. Jack Dalrymple at a state Capitol ceremony. "We want to become a national hub for UAS manufacturing, research and development."
Altavian (al-TAVE-ee-un) will manufacture the UAVs at ComDel’s Wahpeton facility. Company officials say the partnership will create between 4 and 15 manufacturing jobs, as well as 4 to 10 administrative jobs.
