23 years ago, Dyson began with a single concept – a vacuum that wouldn’t lose suction. Years later and Dyson are still breaking convention, pushing into new areas of technology. And it’s this fresh thinking that we still crave today. Beyond the bagless vacuum cleaner, Dyson engineers have developed bladeless fans, high speed hand dryers, robot vacuums and have recently re-thought the hair dryer. Today Dyson invests £5m a week developing new technology and ideas.
