Dyson opens new global headquarters at the historic St James Power Station25 March 2022
Dyson has opened the doors to its new global headquarters at St James Power Station, in the presence of Mr. Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore. The restored 110,000 sq ft. national monument marks an exciting new chapter in Dyson’s continued growth in Singapore, and will sit at the center of its ambitions to enter entirely new fields of research and develop a new generation of high-performing technology products with increasing intelligence.
“You can feel the ambition in Singapore and Dyson’s expansion here is possible because of the wonderful inventiveness and enthusiasm of the young Singaporean engineers and scientists who have joined us. Finding a home for our headquarters in St James Power Station was serendipitous and would not have been possible without the generosity and vision of Mapletree and the steadfast support of the Singapore Government. We are honoured to be the custodians of this cathedral-like building; it’s rich history and architectural heritage will serve as a most inspiring backdrop as we pursue revolutionary new technologies.”
Sir James Dyson
