Philips Volcano becomes Gold member of Holland House
We are very pleased to announce that Philips Volcano has become Gold member of Holland House Costa Rica.
The foundations of Philips were laid in 1891 when Gerard Philips and his father Frederik Philips established Philips & Co. in Eindhoven (Netherlands) – to “manufacture incandescent lamps and other electrical products”. A few years later, in 1895, Gerard’s brother Anton Philips joined the young company. He proved to be a great commercial talent and within a few years Philips was one of the world’s leading producers of light bulbs. Today, Philips is a leading health technology company focused on improving people’s health and enabling better outcomes across the health continuum – thereby creating value for its stakeholders. In today’s increasingly connected world, the convergence of Philips’ consumer technologies that facilitate healthy living, medical technologies that help clinicians to deliver better diagnosis and treatment, and cloud-based technologies that support data sharing and analysis, will be a key enabler of more effective, lower-cost integrated health solutions. In February 2015, Philips completed the acquisition of Volcano and strengthened their position in the image-guided therapy market.
