Revolutionizing lighting for over 125 years
What does your wake-up light have in common with the immersive light shows at Amsterdam ArenA and many other stadiums? They’re both engineered by Philips Lighting. The same goes for those lights that help patients heal quicker and the revolutionary light systems at many offices that enhance employee productivity and save energy at the same time. Philips Lighting even tailors LED systems to boost the growth of many different crops sustainably all year round. The first Philips light bulb was sold sold in 1891. Over the years, they changed the world by pioneering electric light and LED, and they are now leading the way in intelligent lighting systems. At home, outdoors and for a wide range of businesses.
Taking light beyond illumination
Through an IPO in 2016, Philips Lighting joined the club of successful spin-offs of Royal Philips. With 2016 sales of EUR 7.1 billion, they have approximately 34,000 employees in over 70 countries. As an independent company, they will continue to lead the ongoing development of connected lighting systems and services. By leveraging the Internet of Things, they are transforming buildings, urban places and homes. Increasing energy efficiency, managing working environments in a more sustainable way, making cities safer, promoting healing and improving well-being and creating experiences at home like never before. That’s how they are taking light beyond illumination, and help improve the way the world works and people live.
