It was in this garage that two graduates of Stanford University, William Hewlett and David Packard, in January 1939 established a company that was destined for the next decades to periodically "blow up" the market of electronic devices with the advent of epoch-making inventions. Such a harmonious interaction of two extraordinary personalities did not know the history of the business, except for the Philip brothers. Moreover, they constantly competed among themselves for the right to be considered a "right hand", which was the driving force for Phillips corporation. In hp, there has never been a similar competition: the right and the left hand are keen to create. William was more concerned with scientific research and the embodiment of them in the material, and David developed and promoted a business strategy.
Already in the mid-sixties, a computer developed in the arsenal of HP appeared, which historians of the IT industry are inclined to consider as the first in the world, although it looked little like a PC and was intended for testing measuring equipment.
The innovative nature of Hewlett-Packard was based on a unique approach to the organization of the enterprise, which David Packard subsequently formulated in the form of "seven commandments of HP": profit, clients, sphere of interests, development, corporate solidarity, management and citizenship. Essential in this concept was the addition that profit is certainly the first component of the successful development of the corporation, but its receipt must not contradict the other commandments.
It was these principles that allowed HP to retain its structure and multiply its capabilities in the post-war years, when most companies that received orders from the defense ministry were out of work and forced to fire employees. Hewlett-Packard, which in the forties was actively engaged in microwave technologies for the military and reached almost a million turnover, gathered under its wing talented, unconventional engineers, designers, scientists who were left without work. Realizing that such a policy would lead to financial losses, Hewlett and Packard, nevertheless, continued to accumulate intellectual potential. Being multiplied by the possibility of self-expression within the framework of the company's goals, he gave his result.
Thanks to HP in the 60 years appeared the first micro calculators, which remained practically unchanged to this day. And the 80's were marked by the explosive development of digital image processing techniques, inkjet and laser printers, in the development and production of which HP belongs to an unquestioned primacy. In 1994, for the first time, a laser color printer and a multifunctional device combining faxing, scanning and printing of images were presented.
Despite the stunning success and the ever-growing need for duplicating technology, HP did not forget about its computer development. The first HP OmniBook 300 portable computer, comparable in size with the current laptop, was released in 1993 and was the only PC model of this class for several years to come. And today the company occupies a leading position in the production of personal computers, providing the release of 15% of all PCs in the world.
Hewlett-Packard at the present stage
The corporation is represented on all continents in more than 170 countries, including Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine. The number of specialists working in HP exceeds 300 thousand people. The head office is still in Palo Alto, California. The Board of Directors annually allocates 3.5 billion dollars for scientific research, development of innovative technologies and the creation of new products. For example, Hewlett-Packard car DVRs were launched only in 2013, but already managed to gain a foothold in this segment of the market, thanks to the rich functionality, manufacturability and traditional quality of the devices created.
