Software company Maptek has snapped up a $4.05 million investment for a 13.2 per cent interest in K2fly.

“On behalf of K2fly and the board, we very much look forward to working with Peter and Maptek as we continue to grow the K2fly business. Peter’s wealth of knowledge in applying and scaling innovative technological solutions in the mining sector into sustainable and profitable businesses will be invaluable to K2fly.”
