A local business with a global appeal

Success Stories: VMR

VMR Draughting Services (VMR) is a family-run business providing professional Computer-Aided Design (CAD). Founded in 2008 and led by brothers Steve and Vincent Rushbrook, the team boasts over 50 years of combined experience.

Renowned for going the extra mile for their customers, the VMR’s expert team produce CAD solutions including floor plans, layout drawings, electrical and cable schematics and diagrams to companies across a wide range of sectors.

Choosing the CEME Launchpad Centre gave VMR a springboard for growth. It offered high quality facilities and scalable office space on a flexible lease along with invaluable guidance that transformed their business. Steve and Vincent value the benefit of our in-house business support, enabling them to reach their full potential. Sales were boosted by expert advice and opportunities arising from working in a collaborative hub surrounded by like-minded businesses.

In just a year at CEME, VMR has seen a 20% growth in its bottom line and successfully recruited new engineering talent, doubling the workforce. They’ve expanded into a bigger office to accommodate their growing client base, including JP Morgan, Blackrock Investment Bank, Metro Line Buses and The Shard. Their growing reputation secured new opportunities such as developing a computerised flight plan for a worldwide helicopter championship and a CAD design commission for Buckingham Palace.

This solid foundation allows the team to focus on their core technical talents, while giving fresh consideration to the commercial elements of the business and the required support to develop a new strategic vision for the short and long-term future.

It’s been an amazing time working on some exciting projects. 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 regularly inspires us.
