    Dyson chooses Singapore for new electric car plant

    LMAF -

    When are gammons going to realise they were sold up the river by elites?

    The Singapore trade deal with the EU should come in handy for him! <sides splitting anyone?>


    Dyson, the UK-based company best known for its vacuum cleaners, has chosen to build its new electric car in Singapore.The company will break ground on its new factory in Singapore later this year with the first car scheduled to roll off the production line in 2021.
    Dyson said the decision was based on the availability of engineering talent, regional supply chains and proximity to some key target markets.
    Cost was not a consideration.
    Singapore is one of the most expensive territories in the world to do business and space for manufacturing is at a premium in the city state.

    The company has previously said it will commit £2bn to the project, including £200m to be spent in the UK on research and development and test track facilities - much of which has already been spent.
    Dyson insisted the decision to locate production in Asia, rather than the UK, had nothing to do with Brexit.
    New institute

    Although there may be some disappointment that car manufacturing will not be coming to Malmesbury in Wiltshire, Dyson doesn't currently manufacture any of its products in the UK, so this decision is no real departure from that pattern.
    Dyson is given credit for tripling its UK workforce to 4,800 over the last five years and founding a new engineering institute on the site of an old air base which it has renovated.
    The company currently has 1,100 employees in Singapore, 1,300 in Malaysia, 1,000 in China and 800 in the Philippines.

    I don't think Dyson builds anything in the UK anymore?

    Dyson was, of course, extremely pro-Brexit.

      Like where is close to Singapore, has a huge amount of people and a lax attitude to H&S and therefore an abundance of heavy metals to go into your batteries?

      can you think?

      hmm

      can you?

            This has nothing to do with Brexit but I suppose in the small mind of a remainer anything that can be construed to be a negative must be caused by the 'B' thing The UK will be better off out of the EU but change will still happen, the earth will still revolve around the sun and the EU will still wither quicker than anyone expects. Why anyone wants to be part of an EU superstate dominated by an elite who doesn't give a fig about us is beyond me

              I don't suppose the low tax rates in Singapore had much to do with the decision either.
              If it was anything to do with Brexit, he'd have chosen somewhere in Eastern Europe.
              His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

                Really? Who told you that?

                Or is just a nice soundbite that justifies your unwillingness to conform to behaving in way that is best overall for everyone?

                  Singapore has one of the highest costs of manufacturing in the world - not just in SE Asia. Tax isn’t a big enough incentive for manufacturing if the costs are high.

                  ...but maybe Singapore signed a free trade deal with the EU recently, so Mr Euro Hater is making a smart business move for him. It will mean that until the UK has a trade deal with Singapore, his cars will be cheaper in the EU than in the UK.

                    When Brexit happens, JRM, BoJo and their elite friends who don’t give a fig about us will not be dominant in the EU.
