Breville Group has a design and R&D headquarters in Sydney, with manufacturing, distribution and sales facilities around the world.

In a cautiously optimistic trading update announced during this week, Breville Group has reported that:

Total annual R&D Investment has increased 97% between FY15 and FY19;
R&D Team headcount has increased from 60 to 140 employees  between FY15 and FY19;
