It's been a busy few years for Dyson. But the future is set to be even more frenetic. In the last four years alone, we've more than tripled our headcount to 10,000. And in 2016 we achieved a 45% growth in turnover, with profits exceeding £631m. Excitingly, this was helped by one of our newest markets, China, with growth of 244% - in just our third year of trading.
At Dyson, we never stop transforming. In 2012, we had no such thing as a cordless category - just four years later, it's our biggest seller. Until 2016 we'd never made a hair dryer - yet the Dyson Supersonic™ is rapidly dominating markets worldwide. As we look ahead, we'll be investing more time and more profit into future technology than ever before. We'll also be focusing on expanding into new markets. By 2020, we'll have 4,000 more Dyson people and hitting £4 billion in revenue. All part of a carefully mapped £2.5 billion expansion.
It has remained Dyson's ambition to solve the problem of vehicle pollution for nearly 30 years. Now we finally have the opportunity to bring all our technologies together into a single product. Rather than filtering emissions at the exhaust pipe, today we have the ability to solve it at the source. We've begun work on a battery electric vehicle, due to launch in 2020.
For now, it's all about finding the right people to make it all happen.
