The foundations of Philips were laid in 1891 when Anton and Gerard Philips established Philips & Co. in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The company begun manufacturing carbon-filament lamps and by the turn of the century, had become one of the largest producers in Europe. In 1983 Philips claims to have made a technological landmark: the launch of the Compact Disc. Other milestones of the time included the production of Philips' 100-millionth TV set in 1984. The business expanded in the 1980s through the acquisitions of GTE Sylvania's television concern and Westinghouse's lamps business. Moving into the 21st century, Philips continued to change and grow. In 2004 Philips unveiled its new brand promise of “sense and simplicity”.
As part of its Vision 2010, the organisational structure was simplified from January 1, 2008 by forming three sectors: Healthcare, Lighting and Consumer Lifestyle. These steps further position Philips as a market-driven, people-centric company with a strategy and a structure that fully reflect the needs of its customer base.
Known for its innovation, Philips is a very good all rounder that holds its own in all areas.
