2011: CREATION OF PIXIEL
Founded in 2011, Pixiel introduced drones on the TV and film market with its own drones designed and manufactured in-house. The company soon became a leader in the sector thanks to the quality and stability of the footage shot around the world for prestigious television shows. This experience as an operator enabled the company to develop its own drones that can adapt to various weather conditions (heat, cold, humidity, rain, dust, etc.).
2012: CREATION OF THE DRONE FLIGHT TRAINING SCHOOL
In 2012, Pixiel opened its drone flight training school: L’Ecole des Métiers du Drone.
This training centre is now a leader when it comes to training individuals to operate drones and perform related business applications, as well as professionals among Pixiel’s industrial customers.
2015: WINNER OF DELOITTE FAST 50 AWARD
This award recognizes fast-growth companies. Pixiel has posted a growth rate of 1500% since it was founded.
2016: STRATEGIC SHIFT AND NEW GROUP STRUCTURE
In 2016, Pixiel made a strategic shift in its operations and reorganized to focus on its core business: innovation. Drones are now standard tools in the TV and film industry and no longer present real opportunities in terms of innovation. Pixiel has therefore ceased providing audio-visual services as an operator.
2016: GROUP STRUCTURE
In 2016, the company continues to expand and has reorganized as PIXIEL GROUP:
- Pixiel Innovation, R&D design office expert in drone solutions.
- Pixiel Security, business unit marketing drone surveillance solutions.
- Ecole des Métiers du Drone, drone flight training school.
