Bloodhound SSC – A Legacy that’s ‘Built to Last’.

In 1969, Apollo 11 was on its way to an historic first landing on the moon, carrying with it the hopes and aspirations of an entire generation. A year earlier, ‘Science magazine’ observed that “the most valuable spin off [of the space programme] would be human rather than technological…” It proved true, project Apollo was a triumph in human endeavour, drive and ingenuity.

45 years on, and the Bloodhound SSC project team – which includes some of the world’s most revered engineers – are building a car designed to go faster than the speed of sound. Bloodhound has carried out a series of ground-breaking tests and research, including the firing of the largest rocket in Britain in the last 25 years. With the project rapidly gaining momentum, this has now become an iconic global engineering adventure, showcasing innovative technology and manufacturing.

What’s it all about?

How do you distil over 80 years of ethos development into a single phrase? It’s a tough challenge for any company, and one which the team took on at the start of this year. We wanted a simple message to encapsulate the philosophy and thinking behind our products and services. That’s why we’re particularly excited about the Bott  ‘Built to Last’ story.

This blog reveals the substance behind ‘Built to Last’. In future updates, we’ll explain the rigorous test procedures our products undergo before launch and show how a product which is ‘Built to Last’ reduces waste and environmental impact. To put it in context, we’re also going to explore wider examples of Built to Last – from the achievements of the iconic Victorian Engineer Brunel to the cutting-edge engineering of the Bloodhound Supersonic Car.
