“You don’t need to have a 100-person company to develop that idea.”
Larry Page


Entering a new market sector is challenging itself, but outperform with a team of 14 designers and engineers, UMS simultaneously managed three customer projects, qualified the organization to EN9100, and went through the industrialization phase for their products. With the market entry of the V-150, the company demonstrates that you can be successful on the market with a small, agile, and focused team.
From experience working for several start-ups and on many complex and challenging projects, we believe that small teams can deliver great results with the right methods and vision.

Marenco Swisshelicopter

The first swiss helicopter project is one of the best examples of what a small and ambitious team can achieve. Starting with around 10 engineers in 2012, the team designed and manufactured many complex parts, such as gearbox, rotor head, flight controls, blades, electrical system, and structure. Already in 2014, the aircraft was fully assembled and, after series of bench and ground tests, made its first flight on the 4th of October 2014. This was an incredible moment and is now part of the swiss aerospace history.

As with David vs. Goliath story, especially at the initial phase of the project, small teams often outperform big organisations due to many advantages.


ability to adapt quickly to internal and external challenges and make quick decisions


clear understanding on vision and no need for extensive communication


It is all about results and the speed, in a small team, everyone must contribute over 100% and give their best

From concept to the product
