Business: Dyson to move head office to Singapore

Dyson to move head office to Singapore

Dyson has announced that it is moving its headquarters to Singapore, from Malmesbury in Wiltshire. The move by the appliance maker means two executives will relocate – chief financial officer Jorn Jensen and chief legal officer Martin Bowen. Other work at Malmesbury will not be affected and no jobs will be lost.

Sir James Dyson says “We have seen an acceleration of opportunities to grow the company from a revenue perspective in Asia. We have always had a revenue stream there and will be putting up our best efforts as well as keeping an eye on investments.

“We would describe ourselves as a global technology company and in fact we have been a global company for some time. Most successful companies these days are global.”
