Brexit set free james dyson

"I can't make things here and bring over all the components from the Far East here, assemble them here and then send them back to the Far East. That just doesn't work."

The interview came as Dyson announced plans to create 200 new jobs at its research facilities in Malmesbury and Hullavington, Wiltshire.

He fires 600 in UK amid COVID then blows his own trumpet saying he will employ an additional 200 in UK.
Bit of a false note Mr. Dyson.
In 2000 he was threatening to relocate to Malaysia if the UK did not join the euro. He was self-interested then and is the same today.

"It would be arrogant to think that we could design and develop products for Asia and Britain," he said.
"We can develop technology, but understanding what Asians want and what works in the market - we have to be there, we have to be immersed in it."

If you're not self interested you shouldn't be in business.

He seems to be an all-round decent bloke despite attempts like the OP to lie about him.
Restructuring was speeded-up by Covid, the jobs weren't lost because of Covid and these had been planned for a while - but don't let the truth get in the way of a biased rant.
Dyson is very innovative with farming too BTW and he must be doing lots right for the fanatical EUrophiles to hate him so much.

Very true and I'm very happy about his new "university" (nothing more than an old style technical college really IMHO) and that it's open to all genders, races and creeds but he's still a rubbish industrial engineer.

Re: Brexit set free james dyson

I've known James Dyson personally and professionally in the past. I did a lot of work for him in the early 2000's when I developed some custom software to run his plant in Malmesbury. We had a chat every morning over a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich and he used to tell me all about how Dyson came about and how he struggled in the past to get patents and funding for his vacuum cleaner. He's a super nice chap, and is an excellent employer, he gives a lot back.

DYSON have promised the people of north Wiltshire that the companyís Hullavington base still has a Ďbright futureí, following the announcement that its plans to build an electric car there have been scrapped.

The campus at Hullavington Airfield has had more than £200m invested into it since Dyson decided to base its automotive division there in 2017. Now the firm has assured locals the land and its workers will remain part of the Dyson empire.

Sir James Dyson has withdrawn plans for a private runway for his jets at his company airfield in Hullavington, near Chippenham just weeks after announcing he was pulling out of developing an electric car.

But in October he promised the people of north Wiltshire that the companyís Hullavington base still had a bright future

Excellent article Zaphod, and I was wrong to doubt James....I think we should have an apology from Solasch too for misleading us...
