Cyient India Limited (“Cyient”) has signed an agreement with Blom AS, Norway, to acquire 100% of the shares of Blom Aerofilms Ltd (“Blom”). Based in Cheddar, Somerset, UK, Blom is a leading provider of ground surveying, digital mapping, aerial photography and laser scanning solutions. Blom’s presence in the UK can be traced back to 1919 when Aerofilms was founded as the UK’s first ever commercial aerial photography company. Over the subsequent decades the company has built up a wealth of experience and an impressive track record around all types of geospatial data acquisition and services, including aerial and ground-based LIDAR and data modelling. John Renard, Cyient’s President EMEA and BU Head for Utilities & Geospatial commented, “We believe that by combining Blom Aerofilms with Cyient’s geospatial business, Cyient will be well positioned as a complete service provider covering acquisition, modelling and processing services.
