Default Re: Philips to close last UK Factory.(Glemsford)

Philips still produce Tv's, they're made by TP Vision, the Honk Kong arm of Philips. TPV used to make monitors for hospital use and were considered to be very well calibrated.
From a service point of view support now is very limited compared to the 'Croyden' days. I always thought of Philips as one of the most innovative companies with a list of 'firsts' as long as your arm. The research centre at Redhill is now demolished! Are we going to have any 'brains' in this country if everything is made in China? I remember seeing the very first Digibox for UK digital Tv at Redhill. Designed by people here in the UK. Seems all very sad... SJM.
