The Brand Philips
The foundations of Philips were laid in 1891 when Gerard Philips and his father Frederik Philips established Philips & Co. in Netherlands. Ever since, they have built upon a rich heritage of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. From the very first light bulbs and radios, Philips always has the same core values and vision - to improve people’s lives through meaningful innovation and people-centric approach to product design. We do not just invent new products, we entertain and enlighten, we solve and we heal. As a brand that remains fully committed to innovation, our goal is to improve the lives of 3 billion people each year by 2025.
