Things move quickly at Dyson. In twenty years, what began with one man and one idea has grown into a global technology company, with 6,000 people, a presence in over 70 countries and over 80 million machines sold. And it’s just the start. From 2016 our Malmesbury HQ is doubling its footprint. The US, our biggest market, is doubling their sales scope. And new frontiers are opening up across South East Asia and beyond. More people, more ideas and more space for more invention. The next four years will be our biggest and busiest yet. Crucially, as we look to drive future growth by increasing direct sales, dyson.com becomes our most vital global sales channel. In May 2016 Dyson also launched its second connected product, the Dyson Pure Cool Link, which joins our existing 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner with its companion eco-system, Dyson Link. Dyson Link is our IoT solution to enable Dyson products to work in a connected environment. It includes the key components required to create an exciting connected product experience, from mobile apps, web/CRM integrations and cloud services (provisioning, asset management, message routing, product/app analytics, persistence and scaling).
