Philippines — A Dyson Success Story
Dyson set up its advanced digital motor manufacturing facility in the Philippines in 2016 to help meet the global demand for its machines and it was quickly established as a worldwide center of manufacturing excellence. The site in Calamba, Laguna, began with just 10 people and has rapidly expanded to 540 dedicated and talented staff today.
Dyson’s global growth is fueled by technology. To keep up with the demand for its products, it intends to continue investing in its engineering and operations capabilities in the Philippines. In addition, the company will also deepen its investment in technology development which will lead to increased research and development (R&D) being done in the country.
The next few years will be the company’s busiest and most exciting yet. Its facility here is already producing around 10 million digital motors a year, ensuring our technology can reach more people than ever before. This is made possible by Dyson engineers who developed its fully automated manufacturing processes where 300 autonomous robots assemble the digital motors across five lines.
Dyson looks forward to its continued contribution to the growth of its company and the local economy.
