A brief history of Dyson
Dyson was founded in 1978 by James Dyson – a British engineer who also has a background in furniture design. His is a homegrown company with humble beginnings.
It all started when James was renovating his home, and had issues when the wheelbarrow he was using developed punctures and kept sinking into the dirt. This prompted him to come up with prototype alternatives, culminating, some six years later, in the Ballbarrow.
In the meantime, Dyson had started working on other products. Disappointed with the performance of a vacuum cleaner, he took it apart and discovered that the cause of its breakdowns and inefficiency was a layer of dust in the bag that clogged the mesh, preventing the appliance from working properly.
James then visited sawmills and looked at how they removed sawdust from the air using huge cyclones. He scaled down this approach, and invented the first bagless vacuum cleaner.
His products first took off in Japan, where his patents were licensed for the G-force – a vacuum cleaner that could turn into a table to save on space. The profits from this venture enabled Dyson to set up a research centre in the UK, where he would launch his 'say goodbye to the bag’ slogan and things would really take off.
The Dyson Dual Cyclone became the fastest selling vacuum cleaner in the UK, and would set James's company on the path to becoming a market leader worldwide.
