Johannesburg, 25th April 2024 – ETG Inputs Holdco Limited (EIHL), a subsidiary of ETG, proudly announces its acquisition of PACSys, a revolutionary South African company in Agricultural technologies.

This acquisition supports the Group’s aim to play an important role in bringing technology and innovation to Agriculture in Africa. PACSys, Africa's largest accredited distributor of DJI Agriculture's precision agricultural drones and technologies, is recognized for its leadership in the industry. This recognition stems from our rigorous agricultural drone pilot training and Pest Control Operator Development Programs, which align with the regulatory standards set by the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries (DAFF).

“We are thrilled to welcome PACSys to the ETG portfolio,” said Mr Ashish Lakhotia, CEO of EIHL “This acquisition highlights ETG’s commitment to serving the agricultural sector across Africa by providing farmers with access to cutting-edge technologies that enhance yields and support sustainability efforts.”

“As a team that is always looking for new ways to create a meaningful impact, we believe that PACSys’ drive to innovation and entrepreneurship is a perfect fit”, commented Dr. Iyad Takrouri, Head of Agro Chemicals and Seeds at EIHL

"We are excited about the integration of PACSys into ETG," shared Mr. Tim Wise, CEO of PACSys. "This partnership opens up accelerated growth opportunities through ETG's extensive presence across Africa, and we anticipate it will expedite the adoption of drone and aerial application technology, ultimately boosting agricultural production capabilities across the continent."

The focus at PACSys revolves around three core pillars: expert Sales, comprehensive Training, and exceptional Customer Service, all of which are consistently refined and perfected.

The revolutionary DJI Fly Cart 30 drone, the latest product offered by PACSys sets new standards in aerial crop protection, combining long-distance capabilities with strong lifting power to overcome logistical challenges and transform crop protection applications.
