Why did Umeco decide to get involved?
Bloodhound SSC is an engineer’s dream and many of us here at Umeco are passionate about what the project represents and were very keen to get involved and be part of the adventure.
Bloodhound SSC is also the perfect project for Umeco to showcase our expertise and technologies and pass on the benefits of our involvement to other projects.
Involvement in the Bloodhound project
It is Umeco’s Advanced Composites Group (ACG) that has taken on the challenge, as a product sponsor in this project, will be providing composite materials, tooling, design and component manufacturing capability. ACG will provide the skills and materials needed to deliver high performance, light but strong components that will be key to the Bloodhound critical mass and ultimately to its success.
