Fortress UAV – a newly formed subsidiary of Fortress Solutions, a provider of repairs for the telecommunication and cable equipment markets – has announced a new North American repair service for consumer drones.
Fortress UAV says it supports out-of-warranty and crash-damage repairs for DJI and Yuneec drones in the U.S., Canada and Mexico and can return the repaired unit in as little as two days. Fortress Solutions is headquartered in Plano, Texas, and also has facilities in Leesburg, Fla., and Lenexa, Kan.
“We have been eyeing the expansion into drone repair and logistics and preparing for the launch of Fortress UAV for the better part of a year,” comments Brendon Mills, president and CEO of Fortress UAV and Fortress Solutions. “We have expanded and trained our staff to address this unique market and silently launched our services in February. Today, we are excited to officially launch Fortress UAV and aggressively expand our business to fulfill the critical repair and logistics needs for both enthusiasts and commercial operators alike.”
Fortress UAV is an authorized dealer and repair service center for Yuneec and an authorized dealer for DJI. The company says it repairs all variants of DJI Phantom, Mavic and Inspire and Yuneec Typhoon and Breeze drones, as well as the DJI Matrice 600 drone. In the near future, Fortress UAV will also repair the DJI Spark and Matrice 200/210 products.
The company notes it will provide a free estimate to fix a drone if the user sends it in for evaluation.
