Description

Dyson (www.dysoncanada.ca) is about solving problems and finding new ways to make everyday things work better. Our vacuum cleaner technology replaced inefficient bags with a system of cyclones – the first vacuum cleaner with no loss of suction. Today our vacuum cleaners lead the market in the UK, Europe, Japan, Canada and the USA. We developed a hand dryer that works in 10 seconds, invented the first bladeless desk fan and we’ve introduced the Dyson digital motor, a motor that spins five times faster than a Formula One engine, to the market in our cordless vacuum cleaners.

Dyson has a reputation for developing products that are both different and better. But coming up with revolutionary products is just the beginning – a big part of our success is due to the work we do to tell consumers about our products and their benefits.  This is where our Marketing team comes in.
