Philips Museum: a Dutch giant with a worldwide reach

Philips Museum: a Dutch giant with a worldwide reach
A map showing where Philips radios are made, sold and supported.

For a very small country, Holland has certainly nurtured and developed more than its share of world-renowned companies, and Koninklijke Philips (Royal Philips) is probably one the most famous ones of them. Founded in 1891 in Eindhoven, Philips over the decades has been known for its innovation in light bulb, radio, electric razor (Philishave), television, compact disc (CD) and other home entertainment products and diagnostic medical imaging equipment. In recent years, Philips has slowly departed from the low-margin consumer electronics products and focused on things that it's most competitive: lighting and healthcare equipment.

Interestingly, my brother worked for Philips Healthcare in New York state for a number of years, doing medical imaging equipment R&D.
