Innovator seeks to capitalize on growing demand for high-tech electrical appliances

It has been more than 40 years since James Dyson, a British innovative inventor and engineer, launched his first home appliance product, a cyclonic vacuum cleaner that would not lose suction as it picked up dirt.

Since then, James Dyson, the founder and chief engineer of Dyson Ltd, has progressed from being a young man full of new ideas at the Royal College of Art in London to a knighted entrepreneur leading a company with some 4,000 employers including 1,536 scientists and engineers.

Dyson Ltd sells some 85 percent of its products outside the United Kingdom - in more than 50 countries and regions. In 2011 the company's annual revenue for the first time exceeded 10 billion yuan ($1.6 billion). In late 2012, Dyson Ltd's products, which can be found at Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the Vatican, Harvard University and the Time Warner Center in New York, were launched in China.

"I look forward to bringing more machines to China in 2013," said James Dyson.

Dyson Ltd's latest technologies include hot and cool fans, new cylinder vacuum cleaners and the digital slim cordless vacuum cleaner. In China, one of Dyson Ltd's most widely known product series is the Air Amplifier - the original bladeless fan.
