Philips Lighting is now Signify

    May 16, 2018

     

    Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, has today launched its new company name, following the amendment of the company’s articles of association changing its name from Philips Lighting N.V. to Signify N.V.

    The choice of our new company name originates from the way light becomes an intelligent language, which connects and conveys meaning. It is a clear expression of our strategic vision and purpose to unlock the extraordinary potential of light for brighter lives and a better world."

     

    Eric Rondolat

    CEO, Signify

    Signify will continue to use the Philips brand for its products, the most trusted lighting brand in the world, 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.

     

    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 added. “And by connecting it to networks, software, sensors and IoT platforms, we open the door to a smarter world.”
