Dyson Overview

Things move quickly at Dyson. In twenty years, what began with one man and one idea has grown into a global technology company, with 6,000 people and a presence in over 70 countries. From Malmesbury to Malaysia to the US to Australasia and many countries in between, we’ve sold over 80 million machines.

And it’s just the start. From 2016 our Malmesbury HQ is doubling its footprint. The US, our biggest market, is doubling their sales scope. And new frontiers are opening up across South East Asia and beyond. More people, more ideas and more space for more invention. The next four years will be our biggest and busiest yet.



Market Overview

Our story begins in 2004 and today we have more than 800 people working in Singapore. The high technology manufacturing facility in West Park produced its 10 millionth motor in July 2015. With an investment of another $100m, we will now be able to increase our motor manufacturing capacity to 11 million a year.         
                           
Singapore loves technology so it makes sense for us to have our South-East Asia commercial hub for sales and marketing here. With Dyson’s ambitions in Asia, the dynamic team has the huge job of telling the Dyson story and explaining to potential Dyson owners in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines why they need a Dyson machine in their homes.
