Wiltshire technology firm Dyson has announced a further expansion of its Malmesbury site, creating a further 3,000 jobs. The firm's founder Sir James Dyson has also pledged to invest a further billion in developing a hundred new products over the next four years.
The company will also increase production at its manufacturing plants in Singapore and Malaysia, and extend a research programme in universities.
This is in addition to a previously announced plan for a £250 million campus expansion at its Malmesbury site, creating three thousand jobs.
We must relentlessly invent - that's why we are investing in our research footprint here in the UK and investing in our manufacturing capabilities in South East Asia.
Sir James has also revealed that he would vote to leave the EU, saying Germany is too dominant.
