Enabling better health and better care at lower cost

Who are we?

It all started when Frederik and Gerald Philips opened a small factory in Eindhoven to manufacture light bulbs. Since then we’ve grown into a leading, global health technology company with 80,000+ employees, whose ambition is to improve the lives of 3 billion people, every year, by 2025. We could never have predicted over a century ago that we’d be where we are today. But that’s the beauty of the unexpected.

Plenty of people surprise themselves when they work with us. Plenty of people surprise themselves when they work with us. Will you?
