The High Speed Sustainable Manufacturing Institute (HSSMI) is a professional research and technology development organisation. We are a not-for-profit organisation and reinvest continuously in our research, members and products.

Based on our key research themes we support our membership, deliver Engineering Services and commercialise our own products and services. Our people are key to us; they represent more than 70 per cent of our investment. Innovation, collaboration, flexibility and illumination are the basis of our culture. Conceived by our founding members Ford and Loughborough University, supported by 2012 Olympic Legacy funding, we are now a multi-academic, comprehensive business organisation designed to deliver sustainability to our stakeholders. Our home is automotive but we apply techniques, experiences and processes to a wider number of sectors. Enjoy our website and we look forward to joining with you.
