London-based Drayson Technologies expands to Latin America


Drayson Technologies, the tech startup founded by former science minister Lord Drayson, has announced its expansion into Latin America.

The move will bring London-based Drayson Technologies’ air pollution IoT network, CleanSpace, to its Mexico City office, making its full suite of technologies and products available to the Latin American market.

Lord Paul Drayson, chairman and CEO, Drayson Technologies, commented: “I am delighted with the strong level of interest in the Company’s products that we are experiencing in the Latin American market which reflects the region’s dynamism and enthusiasm for innovation. It is fantastic to work alongside Dr Piñuela and to see him bring his inventions home.”

Opening the Mexico office is a natural next step for Drayson Technologies due to regional links through co-founder, Dr Manuel Piñuela, a Mexican citizen. Piñuela began his career in Mexico before moving to the UK to study for his PhD, and it was here he met Lord Drayson and co-founded the business.

Piñuela, CTO at Drayson Technologies, said: “The technology market in Latin America is expanding rapidly. We’re proud to introduce our innovative IoT solutions to the region. We have already identified applications for our products across smart city, agricultural, health, and transport areas as we bring wireless charging and machine learning to businesses and government in Latin America.”

This news follows Drayson Technologies’ £8m Series B funding round in May.
