SkyGeo announces plans to expand to South Africa

San Mateo California, October 19, 2020. SkyGeo, the premier InSAR partner of choice of customers in Europe, North America and APAC, today announced their strategic plan to open a new office in South Africa, which will strengthen the company’s partnerships with corporations and governments in the African markets. This global expansion positions SkyGeo as the first and only InSAR company with a presence in North America, Europe, APAC and Africa.

“The decision to expand into South Africa was a logical step in our business growth strategy,” said Pieter Bas Leezenberg, CEO, SkyGeo. “Central and Southern Africa is home to some of the largest mines in the world, monitoring displacement and displacement with InSAR is quickly becoming the new standard in these regions. It is critical to work with clients where they operate to service them most effectively.”

As the industry’s leading space-based displacement monitoring company, and by far the fastest-growing InSAR only company in the world, SkyGeo’s goal is to empower asset managers globally to take control of their assets through monitoring platforms. Government organizations all over the world rely on analyses done by SkyGeo’s InSAR experts. The company counts some of the world’s largest and most demanding organizations, including Shell and ExxonMobil, as customers.

Thanks to our future presence in South Africa, SkyGeo will establish closer ties with existing clients and is better positioned to introduce our monitoring service to clients throughout the region. Mine related issues are a challenge for any company and country in Africa. By using SkyGeo data in their models, they improve risk management strategies.
