Contract Manufacturer Time 24 have this week completed work on two fascinating projects.
Firstly they have completed the Control Equipment used on the amazing Bloodhound Project. This project is a global Engineering adventure, using a 1000 mph world land speed record attempt to inspire the next generation to get involved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (see www.bloodhoundssc.com). The vehicle (pictured) will go from 0-1000 mph in 55 seconds and next year it is planned to beat the current land speed record of 763 mph at Black Rock Desert in Nevada.
This week also saw Time 24 help complete work by Ardingly Students on a Solar Powered Car (pictured) which will now compete in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, a 3020 kilometre race from Darwin to Adelaide in Australia. The Solar Powered Car can reach speeds of up to 50 mph.
Time 24 MD David Shore commented “The enthusiasm and positivity of these kids has been infectious. They have not only developed their Engineering skills but above all their life skills. They have learnt the need to problem solve, to communicate, to work as a team, to work under pressure and to work to a budget”.
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
