Electronics products...where are they made/designed?

Hi,
This concerns electronics product  design/manufacture/sale.
Is gtech.co.uk owned by Dyson.co.uk?
Gtech  seems to make the same products as Dyson , but cheaper.
Does Gtech get its products and electronics designed and built in China?
If the answer is yes, then can you give one good reason why Sir James Dyson shouldnt have started up  a "gtech" himself? Surely he should have done this? If he didnt , then why on earth not? It was obvious that somebody somewhere would eventually do it anyway.

Damn, and it's not even Sunday yet!  :palm:

Gtech products look very different products to me Treez. They have 'AirRam' etc. The only similarity I see is that they do handhelds and they are bagless. Cyclone technology is old news now.

Dodgy Dyson has many competitors these days, or are you really suggesting that he started Gtech, Shark (Hoover? ;D) and other superior brands to compete with his own over-inflated priced products?

He patents every tiny bit of plastic anway, as a 'masterly' strategy to foil his competitors.

Create all of your own competitors, that's a 'novel' solution. What are you smoking today?  :-DD


P.S. If you need any further evidence of your 'misguidedness' I suggest you consult Companies House... https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/companies-house Did you even bother to go to the Gtech website and look at their company history and products?

Thanks,
I relation to  a British friends British  lighting company, he is currently setting up a duplicate "version" of his company in China. The China based company will actually become the main design and manufacture centre.

His "token" British company will bring forward the  introductions to the UK and EU customers (by advertising and going to trade shows etc etc)....he will then gradually transfer most of the customers  to his cheaper Chinese products. All of his design and manufacture in future will essentially come from China...but be branded as if it had been done in the UK part of the company.

The Chinese "version" of his company will actually be the main company (but it will be "hidden from view"). And  he will have the Chinese company  directed by an acquaintence........so that his own name will not appear on the list of directors at companies house. In other words, the director will actually be employed by him...but nobody will know this. So the director will just be a "puppet" director. ....Payed a wage with some occasional bonus's.

This "Puppeting" had to be done because he would have become unpopular with his British Engineers and Assembly staff if they found out that he was setting up "their" company in China...

...He couldnt let his staff find out that their British "token " company is now basically just a "shell".......and that their job prospects etc will be near  zero....as they will not really be doing anything other than making  it look like the products are  all British designed and manufactured...which of course they wont be....and of course, if you want to be a sucessful Chinese importer, then you need to have "some" kind of prescence in the UK electronics sector....so you have your "token" British company.

The "puppeting" is actually a legally binding agreement, so that the "puppet" director appears to be the real director, but of course, he isnt really......but companies house will think he is....and so too will the rest of the world.

What is your goal with all those "investigations"? What are you trying to prove or achieve here?

Gtech was started by Nick Grey  if his products are any thing related to other brands that would be VAX as he used to work for them. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/gtech-founded-by-nick-grey-cleans-up-h909bh5xs
