Where and by whom are Philips TVs manufactured
You should know, Philips stopped production of household appliances, including televisions, in 2012. But the trademark is money, so the right to produce and sell TVs was licensed to other companies. In the North American continent, the right to manufacture and sell Philips TVs was bought by Funai. In other countries, the Chinese corporation TP Vision bought this right.
Who makes Philips TVs 2012-2019
Who manufactures Philips TVs: Until 2012, Philips TVs were manufactured by the group of the same name. In 2012, the Philips brand was licensed for production by third parties. Philips got rid of the direction of television. Now Philips has nothing to do with Philips TVs.
The only thing left is that TVs under licensing conditions are allowed to be presented on a single Philips site. Visitors to the site have the false impression that the TVs are made by Philips.
Who really is behind the production of televisions under the Philips brand. The license for Philips TVs was purchased by TP Vision, headquartered in Hong Kong. But only for the sale of televisions in Europe, Asia, China, Africa, South America. For the USA, Canada, Mexico and some other countries of the American continent, the brand is licensed by the Japanese company Funai.
Where Philips (Funai) TVs are made North America
For North America, Philips TVs are made by Funai. Funai has represented Philips TVs in North America since 2008 (it was a sales representative and sold TVs). Since 2013, Funai has been independently producing TV sets under the Philips brand (under license).
Funai is an OEM electronics builder that manufactures various devices under any brand according to the customer’s request. Funai’s plants are located in China, but recently, amid trade disputes between the US and China. Funai is considering moving its television production to Thailand, Vietnam, or Mexico.
In 2013, an agreement was reached between Funai and Philips. According to which Funai was supposed to buy electronics plants in Mexico from Philips. But at the last stage Funai refused such an investment. As a result, Philips separated production in Mexico into a separate enterprise. And sold in 2014 but televisions in Mexico were no longer produced.
