Inside Dyson’s top secret UK headquarters, where the world’s best vacuum cleaners are made

DYSON has provided special insight into its UK base, where some of the world’s leading products are invented.

The Sun went behind the scenes to see every little detail that goes into making the best vacuum cleaners, including a multi-million pound laboratory that breeds dust mites for testing.

Around 3,500 people work at the facility, which is located in Malmesbury, a leafy Wiltshire town.

Owner Sir James Dyson, 75, still comes into the office himself and apparently visits engineers from time to time.

We got a glimpse of the man himself as he took off in a helicopter in the afternoon.

The engine enthusiast even has vintage fighter planes scattered around the 75-acre site.

A Lightning jet hangs in the staff cafe while another, Harrier, sits outside in the parking lot.

There are even chic Scandinavian cottages where budding engineers can live while they study.

A bunch are hired there every year to work and study there with no tuition fees – and are even guaranteed a job upon graduation.

We’re told they won’t end up being forced to stick with Dyson, but apparently no one has turned down the chance so far.

Behind closed doors, we’ve been able to see everything from prototypes made with 3D printers to vacuum cleaner experts carefully determining the angle of every single fiber in the vacuum cleaner.

A focus is on vacuum noise, so scientists test products endlessly in a soundproof room that uses lacy triangular foam to block echoes.

In another test chamber, Dyson products are exposed to all kinds of surfaces.

Every Dyson product goes through years of rigorous testing

Who would have thought that UK and US rugs could be so different, so much so that they require rugs from different regions.

And that’s not forgetting the other types of finishes used in different parts of the world where carpets are less common.

A storage closet holds a ton of everyday items that we typically suck up, from pet cookies to cereal.

An expert reveals how they use Cheerios from the UK, as well as a box from the US, since American Cheerios are larger.

It gives you an idea of ​​how detailed this store is.

Seeing dust mites up close was also an enlightening experience — although we’ve gotten much closer to them every night in our own beds without realizing it.

Your mattress, in particular, is a magnet for the microscopic insects where millions can fester if not kept in the right conditions.

The droppings of these tiny creatures accumulate by the thousands, triggering allergies and affecting people with conditions like asthma. So Dyson’s lab is trying to understand how they work.
