The Early Years

A new idea

In 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with his vacuum cleaner’s diminishing performance. Taking it apart, he discovered that its bag was clogging with dust, causing suction to drop. He’d recently built an industrial cyclone tower for his factory that separated paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. But could the same principle work in a vacuum cleaner?

Five years and 5,127 prototypes later…


The world’s first bagless vacuum cleaner.

In 1993 James Dyson opened his own research centre and factory in the Cotswolds, and set to work making a new vacuum. It was called DC01, for ‘Dual Cyclone’, and it was the first vacuum cleaner to maintain 100% of suction 100% of the time.

Research, Design & Development.

All the initial research, design and development of Dyson technologies is done at the Dyson headquarters in Malmesbury, England. It’s here that James Dyson and his team of engineers are hard at work every day, constantly finding ways to make things work better.
