About us

Dyson is a global technology enterprise. We solve the problems others choose to ignore, with uprising new inventions that defy convention and simply work better. We’re driven by progress and thrive on the challenge of relentless improvement. We’re growing fast and our ambition is huge - more categories, more locations and more people.
