R&D CAMEE, established in 2006, provides three core services to small and medium sized businesses:
• Technology Adoption
• Custom Production Runs
• Applied Research
Technology Adoption: We help businesses adopt the hardware and software technologies required for increased efficiencies in production. Whether its creating a digital rendering from a technical drawing, producing a full scale prototype, or integrating automation, R&D CAMEE provides the expertise and industry insight clients need to move their businesses forward.
Custom Production Runs: R&D CAMEE uses its advanced manufacturing capabilities to create limited run productions of custom pieces. We serve a diverse clientele that includes international corporations like ABB, elite driving courses like Virginia International Raceway, and entreprenuers who are attracted to our technology, staff expertise, and confidentiality. When a project requires a personal, custom touch, R&D CAMEE provides the solution.
Applied Research: R&D CAMEE take a hands-on, applied approach to research and development, emphasized through our philosophy of "little r, BIG D." Theory is important, but at R&D CAMEE our goal is to leverage applied research that leads to new products, processes, or industries. we make things. We oversee a diverse research portfolio with projects ranging from the production of affordable, energy-efficient housing to certifying Southern Yellow Pine as a building material for Cross Laminated Timbers. R&D CAMEE’s research has led to a pending patent on a unique adaptive walking stick (The Raising Cane Project) and an innovative, recyclable wine barrel. While the projects differ, they all have the common purpose of leading to the advancement of southern Virginia’s economic potential.
