CSR Executive


Senai, Johor


Our focus is creating machines and technologies that are not only high performing but also energy efficient, environmentally responsible and manufactured in good working conditions.  Monitoring and improving the ethical and environmental standards in our supply chain is a core part of the Dyson CSR strategy.  Dyson owners, retailers and employees expect it of us.  We expect this of ourselves.

Market Overview

In 2000, Dyson moved production from Malmesbury to Malaysia to be closer to our supply chains and open up international growth. The small team of 10 has now grown to almost 1,200 – forming Dyson’s second biggest global hub. Located in the exhilarating industrial heart of Johor, it’s also home to RDD, IT, operations,  finance, creative and HR.

The RDD facility is central to our plans to launch 100 new machines in the next four years. To meet these ambitions, we recently expanded the site to 30,000m², with 50 advanced technology labs and 700 new engineers. In the Dyson world, there’s no more exciting place to be.
