Melbourne, Australia - August 24, 2022 - Volatus Infrastructure LLC and Play&Co Creative Group announced today that Play&Co will head up future designed experience projects for Volatus. Additionally, Play&Co will be providing business development services for the fast-growing Australian electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) infrastructure market.

Founded in 2021, Volatus Infrastructure, LLC is connecting communities to the future with best-in-class eVTOL infrastructure technology to ensure society is ready for the future. Volatus offers three main eVTOL infrastructure designs, a vehicle agnostic charging station, plus an app and maintenance programs. By tailoring to specific needs while incorporating the latest technologies their work positively impacts clients and the communities they serve. Join the future with Volatus Infrastructure.

This partnership marks an important milestone for Play&Co that started early in 2021. Our observation of the rapidly evolving eVTOL industry, experience in global aviation, electric transportation, travel, and user-centered design thinking triggered a self-initiated project in Concept Rise. Since launching in January, it has triggered discussion and debate among industry insiders and experts, which further catalyzed the partnership with Volatus.

This partnership adds to the growing list of countries Volatus Infrastructure has a presence in. "We are seeing an increase in the number of eVTOL companies that are expanding to Australia," said Volatus Co-Founder Grant Fisk. "For our industry to succeed eVTOL infrastructure needs to be on every continent, in every country and in every town."

"Play&Co's partnership with Volatus marks an exciting time for the eVTOL industry and the Australian design community," said Brendan Hutchieson, Play&Co Co-Founder and Managing Director. "As the first vertiport manufacturer in the space, Volatus has realized the urgency to envision and blueprint the complete designed experience for passengers, brands, and operators. This partnership will leverage our team's extensive experience in the aviation, modular architecture, and electric vehicle sectors to define and deliver the future of aviation."

Founded in 2015 by Brendan and Karen Hutchieson, Play&Co is a small, agile and down-to-earth strategic industrial design agency that delivers world-class design services for start-ups through to global organizations.
