Welcome to Philips | Who we are



Who we are

It all started when Frederik and Gerald Philips opened a small factory in Eindhoven more than 127 years ago to manufacture light bulbs. Since then we’ve transformed into a leading, global health technology company, valued at USD11.5 billion (Interbrand 2017), with 80,000+ employees, and an ambition to improve the lives of 3 billion people, every year, by 2025.

In the face of growing and aging populations, the rise of chronic diseases, and global resource constraints, health systems globally are under enormous strain. Digital technology is transforming the healthcare industry, increasingly shifting value towards software and services. It also has the potential to enable more people to actively take ownership of their health and wellbeing.

For Philips, with leadership positions in both personal health and professional healthcare, we see that innovation can transform the delivery of care across the health continuum, enabling new relationships between care providers and patients/consumers, and driving better patient outcomes, higher productivity and a better user experience for all concerned.

At Philips, we believe that there’s always a way to make life better.
