About us

Dyson creates products that differentiate on the basis of technical leadership and innovation.  This is baked into our product development process, ensuring that only world class products make it into production. We push the boundaries of what others have defined as possible. Our approach starts with an engineering mindset and different thinking. Then we continuously refine our ideas – unwilling to compromise and driven by an obsession for finding a better way. 

After production begins, we expect to continually refine and improve our product and offerings, ensuring that we identify, review and respond to market feedback.  Our sustaining team provide the Design Engineering capability and resources to manage, improve, maintain and expand our multi-category portfolio of current production products. Through this approach we maintain and expand our competitive advantage after product launch.
