Dyson announces a second UK Technology Campus in Hullavington as part of its global R&D investment

Dyson has announced plans to begin work on a second Cotswold technology campus, very near its global headquarters in Malmesbury. The 517 acre space, on former Ministry of Defence land at Hullavington, Wiltshire, will increase Dyson's footprint in the UK by 10x. 

The new campus will enable Dyson to continue creating more high-skilled jobs in Britain while boosting UK exports. Dyson has more than tripled its UK headcount in the past five years and currently employs 3,500 people in the UK half of which are engineers and scientists.

Dyson is the UK's largest investor in robotics and the company is realising ambitious plans to develop new technologies such as solid state battery cells, vision systems, machine learning, and AI. It has 40 live technology projects with UK universities including Imperial College London, Cambridge, Warwick and Newcastle.

Sir James Dyson and Baroness Scott both spoke to BBC Wiltshire's breakfast show this morning (1 March 2017) to give their thoughts on why this is great news for Wiltshire. Coverage starts 35:55 minutes into the show and Baroness Scott is interviewed 42:45 minutes in.
