Going Global: HP S.A. in Geneva
Hewlett-Packard S.A. in Geneva was Hewlett-Packard Company’s first foreign subsidiary, created to handle European sales and marketing. Setting a tone for the rest of the company’s global expansion, HPSA was a full member of the Hewlett-Packard family. Bill Hewlett traveled to Geneva in 1983 for the unveiling of a sculpture to celebrate HPSA’s 25th anniversary, and both he and Dave Packard even traveled there to help the facility celebrate Hewlett-Packard Company’s 50th birthday in 1989.
