Delcam is pleased to announce that Russia's Rostvertol company, formally the Rostov Helicopter Plant, has become the 15,000th customer for its range of CADCAM software. The sale was also significant as it was one of the largest orders won by Delcam's strong network of offices in the country and is another example of the company's growing reputation in the aerospace industry.
The Rostov Helicopter Plant was founded in 1939 and has subsequently become one of the world's leading helicopter manufacturers. For the first forty years, the company only produced military helicopters but, more recently, it has also manufactured aircraft for civilian use. A further significant change came in 1992, when the Plant was reorganised from a state enterprise into a public limited company and renamed Rostvertol. Since then, it has diversified into a variety of consumer goods including cargo trailers for cars, vans and foldable beds.
