Sir James Dyson, CBE

FOUNDER OF DYSON AND DESIGNER OF THE DUAL CYCLONE BAGLESS VACUUM CLEANER

Sir James Dyson is the founder of Dyson and the designer of the ground-breaking Dual Cyclone bagless vacuum cleaner. Success was not straightforward however; living off the bank, in increasing amounts of debt, Dyson went through 5,700 failed prototypes before perfecting the design. He was then unable to sell the product to a UK distributor so he manufactured and distributed the product himself. When asked about his career, Dyson notes that “as soon as you become frustrated with something that doesn’t work as it should, investigate the problem and solve it.” Now accounting for a substantial share of the market, Dyson has also invented hand dryers, heaters and wheelbarrows. He has founded The James Dyson foundation which is designed to encourage and inspire budding engineers.
