For this purpose, we will mainly use the premises of the airport we own in Písek-Krašovice. We also plan to invest a part of the funds obtained from the issue in the development of new technologies so that we continue to be the best in the world in our category in this rapidly developing field,” says Ladislav Semetkovský, founder, CEO and majority shareholder of Primoco UAV.
