Inspired by the rapidly growing power industry and the promising results from his own experiments on son Gerrard to make secure carbon strands, in 1891, Frederick Philips financed the purchase of a modest factory in Eindhoven. In 1912, Philips became a limited liability company, with publicly traded shares, listed on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. In 1916, Philips received royal recognition on his 25th anniversary. Two years later he presented the medical X-ray tube. This marked the point where the company began to diversify its range of products and systematically protect its patent innovations in areas stretching from X-ray to radio reception. During this period, trade organizations were established across Europe and in countries like China, Australia and Brazil. Over the years since then, we continued to improve the lives of people with a steady flow of innovative solutions.
