Hewlett Packard got its start over 75 years ago because of two men who believed in their ideas.
In 1939, our founders, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, started a revolution in a garage in Palo Alto, California - the original Silicon Valley startup.
Working with limited resources, the pair created a series of products—starting with audio oscillators used by sound engineers—sometimes using the Packard family oven to put on finishing touches. Their efforts impressed Walt Disney Studios, one of HP’s early customers, and set the course for a legacy of innovation and leadership that has never stopped.
From its origins in a Palo Alto garage to its current position as one of the world’s leading technology companies, HP has grown and evolved significantly since its founding in 1939.
While a lot has changed, our commitment to innovation and creative thought is steadfast. HP creates new possibilities for technology to have a meaningful impact on people, businesses, governments and society.
Today, HP is one of the world’s largest providers of information technology infrastructure, software, services and solutions to individuals and organisations of all sizes. We offer the most complete end-to-end portfolio in the market which spans servers, storage, networking, personal systems, imaging and printing, software, services and solutions. We bring the advantages of that scale, the breadth and depth of our portfolio, to solve our customers’ most challenging problems. That’s the reason we are the #1 or #2 leader in almost all product categories in which we compete.
We work hard to nurture an inclusive culture where all of our employees contribute to tomorrow’s breakthroughs. After all, ingenious ideas and inspired thinking can come from anyone, anywhere, anytime.
