Transcript of James Dyson Timeline

1947 The year Sir James Dyson was born in North folk, England. 1956-1965 From 1956 to 1965, James went to Gresham's Boarding school, in Holt, Norfolk. Also the time when his father died from cancer. James Dyson Gresham's Boarding School 1965-1966 James then spent a year at the Byam Shaw School of Art. It is now part of the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. The central saint martins college of art and design 1966-1970 Before moving into engineering, he went to study furniture and interior design, at the Royal College of Art. 1970 This was the year James Dyson created his first product, the Sea Truck. The Sea Truck is a high-speed watercraft, made from fiberglass. It may be used to park vehicles 1974 This was the year that James Dyson designed the Ballbarrow. He simply replaced the wheel with a ball, preventing the wheel from sinking into soft ground. 1979 In the late 70's, James Dyson got the idea of creating a vacuum cleaner that would not loose it's suction as it picked up dirt. 1983 1986 After 5 years and many prototypes, James Dyson produces his first prototype cleaner, a pink machine called the "G-Force." The world's first cyclonic bagless vacuum cleaner arrived. "G-Force" Ballbarrow This was the year the Japanese started using the new cleaner. No manufacturer could handle this product in the UK, as it would affect the market. So instead, James Dyson launched it in Japan. 1991 He won the 1991 International Fair Prize in Japan for his creation, "G-Force." 1993 After failing to sell his product to manufacturers, James Dyson opened his own research center and factory, in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. 1999 2001 In 2001, the DC07 was released. It was the first vacuum to use the Root Cyclone technology. The "Cyclone separation," that Dyson vacuum cleaner uses, helps remove dust and air particles from the air stream.
Its features are quite similar to the DC04 DCO7 2001-2009 In 1999, the DC04, (Dual Cyclone 4) was released. It was very successful to the DCO1, as it sold far more models. It had improved filters and was noted as the new "Life Time" title. DC04 2002 In 2002, the Dyson company moved their vacuum cleaner production to Malaysia. James Dyson claimed that he got permission to expand his factory. But, the local government said that, the piece of land he wanted was owned by a private owner, who didn't want to sell his land. A year later, the washing machine production also moved to Malaysia. 2011 In 2005, James Dyson used his Ballbarrow concept, and put it at the bottom of a vacuum cleaner, claiming it to be more maneuverable. During that year, he also got elected to be a Fellow of The Royal Academy of Engineering.
In 2006, James Dyson launched a fast hand dryer, called the Dyson airblade. In 2009, he launched a fan without blades, calling it the Air Multiplier.

The award is called the James Dyson Award.
