The photogrammetry platform provider Pix4D continues its global growth and expands its Tokyo office to serve the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The expansion shows the growing demand in the region for software solutions to support commercial drone operations.
The Switzerland-based company Pix4D, Parrot, already has offices in Lausanne, Berlin, Madrid, San Francisco, Denver, Shanghai and Tokyo. In recent years, Pix4D has diversified its product offering to meet specific needs in a wide variety of industries: surveying and mapping, inspection, construction, agriculture and public safety. “Last year Pix4D announced the stand-alone cloud platform Pix4Dcloud, the specialized large-scale mapping software Pix4Dmatic and the powerful inspection combination of Pix4Dscan and Pix4Dinspect,” the company said in a press release. “The latest product from Pix4D, the 3D scanning app Pix4Dcatch, has already been used for research purposes by the renowned University of Agriculture in Tokyo.”
The Pix4D Tokyo office opened in 2019 and is moving to Shibuya Jinnan to expand. “This office will also work closely with Pix4D’s Shanghai office to best serve China and other countries in Oceania, East, South and Southeast Asia,” the press release said.
“We look forward to this next phase of Pix4D development in some of the largest economies in the world. We have developed into a multitude of products over ten years and are continuously investing in the development of next-generation photogrammetry and analysis tools, “says Christoph Strecha, founder and CEO of Pix4D. “We look forward to strengthening our collaboration with our existing local partners and customers in the APAC region and developing new partnerships and synergies.”
“Our new office and expanded team in Tokyo offer a unique opportunity to be closer to our customers and to help even more companies and users introduce Pix4D products and services in Japan and the APAC region,” added Matteo Gismondi , Regional Manager of the APAC office.
