New Jersey-based satellite company SES builds wheelchairs for veterans

A Middlesex County-based business took on a mission Wednesday to help veterans in need.



SES operates dozens of satellites worldwide. More than 70 SES employees built 15 wheelchairs for local veterans.



Many of the SES employees who took part in the project are veterans themselves. The wheelchairs were handed out in Plainsboro Wednesday.



"There are several rounds of problems that we have to solve and then if you solve the round, you get a piece of the wheelchair that you can add to it, so that's how we build the wheelchair," says SES's Douglas Clayton. "I'm an engineer. We love to solve problems."



SES employees last year built bicycles for less fortunate children in time for Christmas.
