Dyson to invest £250m in expansion

In Industry News On

According to the Daily Telegraph, Dyson are planning the largest expansion in the company’s history by investing £250m in the further development of the company headquarters in Wiltshire, while also creating jobs for 3,000 engineers.

The expansion will see the HQ in Malmesbury double in size and quadruple the number of engineers in Dyson’s employ.

A proposed “technology campus” is planned to include R&D laboratories spread across four buildings.

The company has been working on plans for the new site for the past two years and is close to securing planning permission. Sir James Dyson commented that should he get the government help required, the new site could be built by 2015.

Sir James Dyson is also seeking government assistance with employment opportunities that also feature within his expansion plans, ideally through a grant to help students pay their fees. With this help, he plans to offer competitive salaries to students who stay on at university to undertake postgraduate research.

The employment proposition is said to carry an underlying hope this will prompt the government to help engineering become an enticing career choice across the domestic scene.
