A centre of innovation in the heart of Spain
Lausanne, Switzerland: On November 1st 2018, Pix4D opens a new R&D office in Madrid. It is the company’s fifth office after Lausanne, San Francisco, Shanghai and Berlin.
As a centre of innovation, research and development, Pix4D Madrid will continue to expand and develop Pix4D’s knowledge of photogrammetry and machine learning, with the goal of creating an entirely new solution for the professional drone market.
Madrid is Europe’s door to Latin America, an important and growing market for Pix4D. Alexis Castilla Hernandez, a long-time Pix4D employee, and now Head of Product Management at the Madrid office notes the location is ideal for innovation: “Madrid is a centre of R&D, thanks to its universities. It’s a cosmopolitan city, which is great for Pix4D as we have a very multicultural staff and culture. And as a bonus, the social life possibilities in the city are awesome!”
Dr. Christoph Strecha, Founder and CEO of Pix4D, commented: “After opening an office in Berlin in 2017, where we focus on precision agriculture and successfully forged Pix4Dfields, Pix4D is expanding to Madrid to invest further in its technology. Given our strong user base, with 20,000 new customers in the last year alone, it is a much-needed step to continue answering to the high demand for dedicated tools. We are all excited to be part of a technology development where cameras become as important for industrial application as eyes are for humans.”
As well as attracting new customers and employees, the new location will be better able to serve existing customers. With a team including native Spanish speakers, the new Pix4D Madrid will cater to both Spain and Latin America. The team is expected to expand to 25 Pix4Ders by 2019.
