Dyson has announced that it will be launching a new UK tech centre for development and research, which will be the second such facility it has opened, forming part of its plans to establish itself as a future technologies pioneer.
This centre is set to be located in Hullavington, with initial work to prepare the chosen site due to begin this month. Sir James Dyson, the company’s chief engineer and founder, was not able to confirm the precise number of jobs that the centre will create, but stated that it would enable Dyson to go on manufacturing top quality products within the Cotswolds.
The firm has not revealed the scale of the investment in this centre, but it has publicly stated that it will plough funding of £2.5bn into future technologies. This is on top of the £7m per week spent on development and research.
Having made its name with the manufacturing of bag-free vacuum cleaners, Dyson has sought to expand into other areas in recent times, with significant funding being put aside for battery technology, artificial intelligence and robotics.
Speaking to the Financial Times, Sir James went on to add that: “After 25 years of UK growth, and continuing expansion globally, we are fast outgrowing our Malmesbury campus. The 517-acre Hullavington campus is an investment for our future, creating a global hub for our research and development endeavours.”
