CEME business lands world-leading helicopter gig

An innovative Havering business, housed at the CEME Launchpad Centre, has won a lucrative contract to draw up the flight plan for the Heli Expo Challenge Cup. VMR Draughting Services, a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Specialist, secured the exciting project competing against businesses from across the world. The family-run business has created a bespoke flight plan to challenge the best helicopter pilots in the world as they compete in heats this summer in High Wycombe, before designing the course for the grand final in Bucharest next year.

Since taking up residency at the CEME Launchpad Centre, VMR Draughting Services has doubled its workforce and seen 20% growth within a year. The business boasts a line-up of blue-chip clients across the UK offering everything from one-off projects to long-term solutions. It has been commissioned to complete a unique CAD design for new doors which will be installed at Buckingham Palace.

Steve Rushbrook, Director of VMR Draughting Services said: “It’s been an amazing year of working on some exciting projects and winning the flight path project has been testing and fun to be involved with. The professionalism, facilities and support available at the CEME Launchpad Centre has been invaluable and integral to our growth. The entrepreneurial spirit encapsulated here is something that never fails to inspire us.”
