History

A pioneer in California’s Silicon Valley, HP was founded in 1939 by Stanford University classmates Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard.

The company’s first product, built in a Palo Alto garage, was an audio oscillator—an electronic test instrument used by sound engineers. One of the first HP customers was Walt Disney Studios, which purchased eight oscillators to develop and test an innovative sound system for the movie Fantasia.

The merger between HP and Compaq Computer Corporation in May 2002 heralded the start of a new chapter in the company’s long and distinguished history.

The merger united two strong companies that together offer unparalleled market leadership and world-class technology innovation.

Over 70+ years, HP has enjoyed an enduring reputation for excellence in quality, reliability, service and support.
