  • UPMARKET appliances maker Dyson today severed its partnership with a key supplier accused of “unacceptable” labour practices at its Far East factories.
  • The firm, privately owned by British billionaire James Dyson, has terminated a contract with Malaysia’s ATA IMS, which makes parts for its high-end vacuum cleaners and air purifiers.
  • Dyson subsequently commissioned an audit into the supplier’s practices which reported its findings last month.
  • Dyson, whose HQ is in Singapore, said: “Despite intense engagement over the past six weeks, we have not seen sufficient progress.
  • The bin bases, battery covers, brush bars and other parts it makes for Dyson’s appliances account for almost 80% of its revenue.
  • It posted record revenue and profit for the year ended March 2021 as Covid- induced lockdowns boosted demand for home appliances such as Dyson’s stick vacuum cleaner.
