GRAYSLAKE, IL – 6 Apr, 2017 – Locally owned International Mold and Production LLC (IMAP) announced today that it will be producing plastic injection molded housings for The Drone Racing League’s (DRL) Racer 3 effective June 2017. Company officials have been collaborating with New York based- The Drone Racing League, shown on ESPN and Connekt LLC based in California to develop a first of its kind protective Polycarbonate resin based outer Canopy to assist in minimizing damages upon impact.

DRL officials expect this product to improve performance and widen its customer base. In addition to molding the outer shells and lenses, IMAP hopes to assist in the development of additional models and styles in the future. IMAP is especially proud of its ability to meet the 4-week timing desired.
