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”.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"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. "
