Successful innovation starts when a company identifies a gap in the market. For us that was just the beginning. Having built the company around the disciplines of Rope Access and Height Safety, we then identified an opportunity to compliment our core expertise with the latest technological advancements in UAVs.

In 2013, RIGCOM partnered with a respected CASA Certified UAV operator which brought about the creation of RIGCOM Access – UAV. We have now combined our expertise to offer the most advanced and complete solution to meet the needs of our customer base by providing professional and reliable industrial inspections, land surveying and inspection service for some of the world’s largest companies.

We now provide a truly unique professional and reliable service.

We are one of only a small number of companies in the world that offer such services and have the ability to consistently and effectively deliver total customer satisfaction and excellence in what we do.
