A new idea

In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner’s diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He’d recently built an industrial cyclone tower for this factory that separated point particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner?

He set to work. Five years and 5,137 prototypes later, he had invented the world’s first bagless vacuum cleaner.

Dyson today

Today, there are Dyson machines in over 65 countries around the world. Dyson has grown from one man and one idea to a technology company with over 1,000 engineers worldwide. But it doesn’t stand still. At its core is an ever-growing team of engineers and scientists. More ideas. More invention.

Dyson engineers

Dyson engineers and scientists in Britain, Singapore and Malaysia are dedicated to inventing and improving Dyson machines. They are drawn from a broad spectrum of disciplines: fluid dynamics, robotics, acoustics, electronics and microbiology to name just a few. Each one is an expert in their field. Working together, they ensure Dyson machines outperform others and that they’re built to last.
