Bloodhound SSC

thyssenkrupp Materials (UK) are proud to be a sponsor of the Bloodhound Project

Never one to shy away from a challenge, thyssenkrupp Materials (UK) are helping to push the boundaries as a Product Sponsor of the Bloodhound SSC® Engineering Adventure project.

With the ability to cover 150 metres in the blink of an eye the Bloodhound SSC® is faster than a speeding bullet, this amazing engineering adventure demands the very best from the Bloodhound car and in turn, the Bloodhound car demands great things from its material.

Thanks to our ability to meet with the strict material requirements for the fastest car in the world, thyssenkrupp Materials (UK), held the answer to the Bloodhound team’s material requirements. With long standing material expertise and experience, thyssenkrupp Materials (UK) is able to meet the demanding material specifications and requirements that will enable Bloodhound to achieve its goal of conquering the 1000 mph land speed record.

The relationship between thyssenkrupp (UK) and the Bloodhound SSC® team first came about when we were contacted by an engineering sub-contracter who was aware of our product range and capabilities, bringing to our attention the Bloodhound SSC® project.

Our access to high performance materials and the availability which we are able to offer on these materials has meant that we have been the perfect partner for the Bloodhound team, offering a full range of products, including international grades from within the UK.

Each element of the car is vitally important and demands the best from its material, demanding the best from thyssenkrupp Materials (UK).
