Philips glasfabrieken

Summary

Corporate film by Philips.

Philips was a vertically organized company that did almost everything in-house: the technological and chemical research, the transport, and the production of finished and semi-finished products. The company saw the promotional possibilities of film early on, and had dozens of corporate films made to present Philips to the outside world. The film Philips Glassworks was shot in the Philips factory that produced glass housings for lightbulbs. In the factory, dozens of glass blowers can be seen making these glass housings. Two of them even manage to blow and stretch a piece of glass to a length of twenty meters.
