Philips Lighting is now Signify

Announcement from Philips Lighting

We are excited to announce that Philips Lighting has changed its name to Signify. It is the most important milestone since Philips Lighting became a standalone company two years ago.

Signify is a name we chose carefully. It reaffirms the powerful purpose of everything we do – to unlock the extraordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world. Its meaning fits with our rich heritage, extending back more than 125 years, as well as with the requirements of a new contemporary and international company with a great purpose.

While the company name has changed, all the things that you have come to trust in us – our commitment, service, and quality – will stay the same. We will also continue to use the name Philips, the most trusted lighting brand in the world, for lighting products.

We are proud of this step in shaping the company as an independent entity, and excited about the future that lies ahead.

For more information about Signify, we invite you to visit our company website.

Signify will continue to use the Philips brand for its products under the existing licensing agreement with Royal Philips. The company expects the name change to be implemented in all the countries where it is active by the beginning of 2019.

About Signify

Founded as Philips in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, we’ve led the lighting industry with innovations that serve professional and consumer markets for more than 127 years. In 2016, we spun off from Philips, becoming a separate company, listed on Amsterdam’s Euronext Stock Exchange. We were included in the benchmark AEX index in March 2018.

With operations in more than 70 countries and 32,000 people worldwide, Signify generated sales of EUR 7 billion and invested EUR 354 million in Research and Development in 2017.

“We are driven by the principle that light is essential,” Eric Rondolat CEO. “And by connecting it to networks, software and cloud computing, we open the door to a smarter world where light delivers value beyond illumination.”
