In early May 2023, global technology company Dyson announced plans to accelerate its international advanced manufacturing capabilities and global R&D footprint. These new developments, which are part of the company’s ongoing USD 3.5 billion investment plan, include setting up of a next generation battery plant in Singapore and new R&D campuses in the Philippines and the United Kingdom, with its new plant in Singapore set to double the company’s advanced manufacturing footprint.
The new plant in Singapore, reported to be the most significant investment in advanced manufacturing in Dyson’s history, is expected to be completed later in 2023, and will become fully operational by 2025, producing Dyson battery cells with proprietary technology for newly developed Dyson products. The company started its in-house battery program more than a decade ago, to pioneer smaller, lighter, more sustainable, and more energy dense batteries.
Other developments outside of Singapore include a new Philippines Technology Centre, which costs about USD 210 million, will bring together Dyson’s research, development and advanced motor manufacturing capabilities under one roof, and a major new Technology Centre in Bristol, UK, which will bring together software and AI engineers working on various products, and the company’s Great Britain and Ireland commercial and ecommerce teams.
