Dyson will construct its first advanced automotive manufacturing facility in Singapore. The bespoke two-storey manufacturing facility is scheduled for completion in 2020.
Dyson’s history in Singapore began 11 years ago with a small engineering team developing our high speed, digital, electric motors. Since then, they have grown to 1,100 people strong, and have made over fifty million high-speed Dyson Digital Motors.
“Singapore is central to our future and we expect to more than double our team there,” said Jim Rowan, CEO of Dyson.
Dyson’s Singapore Technology Centre is located at Science Park One and its Advanced Manufacturing Centre at West Park where it manufactures 21m motors a year on autonomous production lines. Dyson draws on Singapore’s pool of highly skilled engineers and scientists, developing Dyson’s latest technologies as well as core robotic and software expertise.
The production manufacturing facility will build on Dyson’s existing advanced motor and battery expertise in Singapore and draw on the nation’s expertise in Research & Development, advanced manufacturing, automation and access to supply chains. The location was chosen due to proximity and access to high-growth markets, ready access to a supply chain of advanced materials and components, availability of highly-skilled engineers and scientists and advanced manufacturing capability.
