Who we are

Dyson ( is about solving problems and finding new

ways to make everyday things work better. Our vacuum cleaner technology

replaced inefficient bags with a system of cyclones - the first vacuum

cleaner with no loss of suction. Today our vacuum cleaners lead the

market in the UK, Europe, Japan, Canada and the USA. We developed a hand

dryer that works in 10 seconds, invented the first bladeless desk fan

and we've introduced the Dyson digital motor, a motor that spins five

times faster than a Formula One engine, to the market in our cordless

vacuum cleaners.

Dyson has a reputation for developing products that are both different

and better. But coming up with revolutionary products is just the

beginning - a big part of our success is ensuring the right product is

in the right place. This is where our Logistics & Supply Chain team
