HSSMI and Loughborough University London, who have benefited from a strong partnership since the campus first opened in 2015, have announced they will both be expanding their offices.
HSSMI will be leaving its current premises on the fourth floor of the Loughborough University London building in March and moving into its first own individual company space in Hackney Wick.
Its former offices will be made available for the growing number of new students coming to Loughborough University London.
The University is making a significant investment to develop additional teaching space and facilities, enabling the campus to progress into its new exciting phase of development and to further improve the student experience on campus.
For HSSMI moving into its own offices represents a big step in independence of the business. Having started in 2012 with one office and eight employees, HSSMI now employs over 50 people across three regional offices in London, Birmingham and Glasgow. The company offers services to the manufacturing industry to innovate and become sustainable. The new offices will be located in the recently completed Bagel Factory, 100 metres away from the Hackney Wick Overground station and a ten-minute walk away from Loughborough University London.
As such, it will not be a very distant move, but it will signal a next step in the development of both HSSMI and Loughborough University London. Both parties are eager to continue their strategic partnership and already have initiatives in mind to continue working together. More information about these will follow soon.
Axel Bindel, Executive Director HSSMI says: “Loughborough University has been a strategic partner to HSSMI from the very beginning. It is a great success story that both organisations are growing and expanding their offices. We look forward to continuing this strategic partnership and supporting innovation for businesses.”
Professor Robert Allison, Vice-Chancellor at Loughborough University said: “We wish HSSMI every success in their new premises and look forward to continuing our partnership with them. The expansion of the Loughborough University London building marks another exciting milestone in the growth and development of the campus.”
