Appliance specialist Dyson to expand in 2013

Engineering firm Dyson has announced it is to grow its UK workforce in 2013 with 100 engineers and designers set to join over the coming months.

The Wiltshire-based company is known around the world for manufacturing its bagless vacuum cleaner and Airblade hand dryers. Earlier this month Dyson unveiled its new Airblade Tap, which allows users to wash their hands and then dry them in 12 seconds thanks to an integrated dryer that pumps out air at 430mph.

According to a report by the Western Daily Press, the business has just opened a brand new £50m manufacturing facility in Singapore. Its main role will be to produce miniature digital motors to go in the firm's latest range of products.  

A company spokesman said: "The facility in Singapore will give Dyson greater control over intellectual property, and production processes and sits at the heart of our supply chains.

"Most importantly, it will help Dyson meet growing demand for its DDM-powered technology. Dyson's cordless vacuums, powered by the Dyson digital motor, saw unprecedented growth in 2011 and 2012."
