Lauren International acquisition strengthens UAV foothold in Ohio

Lauren International said it has acquired Theiss Aviation, Inc., an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) solutions company based in Salem, Ohio.

Theiss, renamed Theiss UAV Solutions, LLC under Lauren, will now have access to funding for projects, production resources, and a larger marketing presence through Lauren´s family of companies.

“We´re thrilled to join with Lauren to mutually expand capabilities for both companies,” said Shawn Theiss, Founder and General Manager of Theiss UAV Solutions. “We´re excited to align ourselves with a company that shares the same business ethics and beliefs.”
With the Theiss UAV Solutions acquisition, Lauren gains another foothold in the aviation and UAV market in Ohio, having purchased North Canton-based radio-controlled (R/C) flight YouTube channel, Flite Test, in 2014.”

Theiss UAV Solutions will also leverage experience in working with the FAA to obtain airworthiness certificates, certificate of authorizations (COAs), and pilot certifications for clients, enabling more Ohio businesses to use cost-effective UAV technology in their daily operations.

Theiss UAV Solutions becomes the ninth member of the Lauren family of companies.
