A new idea
In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner’s diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He’d recently built an industrial cyclone tower for his factory that separated paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner?
Today, there are Dyson machines in over 65 countries around the world. Dyson has grown from one man and one idea to a technology company with over 1,000 engineers worldwide. But it doesn’t stand still. At its core is an ever-growing team of engineers and scientists. More ideas. More invention
Dyson engineers and scientists in Britain, Singapore and Malaysia are dedicated to inventing and improving Dyson machines. They are drawn from a broad spectrum of disciplines: fluid dynamics, robotics, acoustics, electronics and microbiology to name but a few. Each one is an expert in their field. Working together, they ensure Dyson machines outperform others and that they’re built to last.
Research, Design & Development
All the initial research, design and development of Dyson technologies is done at the Dyson headquarters in Malmesbury, England. It’s here that James Dyson and his team of engineers are hard at work every day, constantly finding ways to make things work better.
Engineering the future – the James Dyson Foundation
Engineers are the world’s problem solvers. And we need more of them. This is why James Dyson is so passionate about encouraging more young people to pursue science, technology and engineering. The James Dyson Foundation is a charitable organisation that supports students and teachers via bursaries, education programmes and teaching materials.
