Vacuum manufacturer makes first foray into water dispension
Vacuum cleaner manufacturer Dyson has announced its first tap product, it was announced earlier this week.
The tap is a no-touch water faucet, which lets users wash their hands without touching anything, and an ultra-powerful hand dryer that removes the need to cross the room, the company said in a statement.
“The secret is a fully-integrated 1400W motor housed underneath the sink that draws air in through a HEPA filter before blasting it through a small aperture and onto your hands, which are dried in just 14 seconds,” the company said.
Dyson Ltd is a British technology company, founded in 1993 by James Dyson, which designs and manufactures vacuum cleaners, hand dryers, bladeless fans and heaters. It sells machines in over 50 countries and employs 3,100 people worldwide.
Initially, all Dyson vacuum cleaners and washing machines were made in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. In 2002, the company transferred vacuum cleaner production to Malaysia.
Dyson claimed that they requested planning permission to expand the factory to increase vacuum cleaner production, but that this application failed. However, the local government claims that no such permission was ever sought and the move aroused some controversy.
