Dyson Overview


Market Overview

Dyson Philippines was established in 2016 for precision manufacturing and development of Dyson's core technology for our future machines. This pure engineering environment is alive with prototyping, testing and development.

Function Overview

Our Design engineering team is the idea factory of Dyson. It’s where we took the bag out of the vacuum. The blades out of a fan. And the heat out of hand dryers. With free-flowing curiosity and creativity, ideas are never in short supply. The key is deciding which ones could change the world and which should, for now, be shelved. This is done by the New Product Innovation team, who pass on the best ideas to New Product Development. Sketching, prototyping, testing, failing and refining follow. It can take months, even years. But those ideas that make it are big. The ones that transform markets.
