Back in 1891 no one could have predicted that the Philips company, started by Gerard Philips and his father, would be pushing technological boundaries across a span of 125 years. The brand began as the world’s leading producer of light bulbs and has relentlessly innovated in a way that’s virtually unmatched by other companies.
Philips began producing radios in 1927, and not long after they moved into personal products with Philishave, created in 1938. Although these are products still used today, this was just the beginning for the company, and since that time constant innovation has been at the forefront of everything they do. Over the decades Philips has brought the public compact audiocassettes, partnered with Sony to create compact discs and DVDs, expanded into health care, and created an entire lineup of personal care products that millions of people use in their homes every single day.
With multiple industry awards in innovation, design, efficiency, and sustainability, Philips may be a top-three CE Brand in the world, but they still have the same values they did 125 years ago. Philips creates for the people who use their products, and with that in mind they will continue to innovate for years to come.
