Inventor and engineer of British origin, James Dyson recently announced the opening of a second campus to bring about an increase in the stature of his brand Dyson. The first campus of the company is reportedly situated in Malmesbury, Cotswolds. The rapid expansion of the brand as a name through 25 years of its existence has been one of the prime causes of the campus becoming quite insufficient for the ever-growing population of the place.
Hullavington has been selected to be the location for the second engineering campus. The entire structure is to be built on a total of 517 acres of land. According to BBC news, the magnate describes the new campus to be "a global hub for our research and development". As an investment for the future, Dyson takes the project to be one that will help them create and provide quality products and supply them in the near future as well from Cotswolds itself.
Founded in the year 1993, Dyson happens to be a privately owned firm of none other than James Dyson himself. The production of bagless vacuum cleaners is what made the company reach the maximum level of popularity. According to Financial Times, the location of the Hullavington campus is in close proximity to the Dyson headquarters. In the words of Prime Minister Theresa May, "This investment is a vote of confidence in our modern industrial strategy and our determination to cement the UK's position as a world leader in high-tech engineering," The initial preparation for the project is to begin next week.
As per the information that has been derived regarding the site, it happens to be an RAF station that was used for training purposes. It is one of the 12 other stations that had been put up for the purpose of sale. Thus to speak of it differently Dyson's new global hub project might be a way to put the land use for the first time after the 1990's.
