PHILIPS LIGHTING HAMILTON 70 YEARS
The Hamilton site just south of Glasgow was established in 1947 with purpose built manufacturing facilities. A glance at our Philips Publications 'A Career with Philips' of 1960 records a diverse range of products manufactured at Hamilton. With many pictures the 70 year history ' Philips Hamilton at 70' just added to Philips Publications is a document well worth reading. Many thanks to Gillian Quigley and her team of local historians for providing this important record of the products and people from Hamilton - the oldest active Philips site which sill remains in the UK. Hamilton must also be the longest active site, it 70 years and still going exceeds Mitcham 1929-1992.

MULLARD NAME CHANGE
Most of the historic brand names of the 1950 and WW2 have disappeared - Pye, Decca, ECHO and Ada. Mullard Components voluntary changed its name to Philips Components on 27 April 1988. The story in a special publication is now up under Mulllard Publications in our Philips Archives. This story is endorsed by the then Mullard Management Team (with pictures). Many thanks to Jean Edwards who continues to find such gems.

POLITICS
What more can be said about Brexit and Trump? One thing is sure both have made their mark in history. Much as high buildings and insulation have at Grenfell and other locations outside UK. And we continue to confront the evils in our own society who carry our so called terrorist acts, biting the hand that supports them.
