At Dyson we believe everything could be better. Fuelled by a frustration with things that don’t work properly and a relentless obsession with making them work better, we’ve spent the last 25 years pioneering inventions and continually improving.
We’re growing fast. And our ambition is huge. But it’s not simply about more people and more profit. Dyson is all about better ideas and new technologies. It’s about inventing the future.
Our philosophy remains the same as it was 25 years ago when James Dyson invented the first cyclonic vacuum cleaner. We remain family-owned. We don’t bow to outside shareholders or report to the stock exchange. Instead we plot our own path, unshackled from conventional thinking.
Our Malmesbury campus was established in 1993. It is the base for over 4,500 Dyson people and also home to the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology.
It is home to our global Research, Design and Development (RDD) centre and a base for many of our advanced engineering teams. It's also a global hub for Dyson's creative and support teams. In nearby Hullavington and Bristol, our artificial intelligence (AI), IT and automotive teams are developing next-generation technology.
