The Philips Consumer Electronics Company, was the Maker of this Crosley Color Television
The world-renowned Philips Consumer Electronics Company, was the maker of this Crosley color television. By 1995 Philips Electronics had become the only American-owned television manufacturer remaining in North America. The other television plants in the United States by this time. Were all Japanese owned. Television manufacturing in Greeneville Tennessee was started by the time-honored Magnavox Company in 1950, this was three years after the Magnavox company established a well know, and high-quality radio cabinet-making operation here in Tennessee. After this time, the making of console and portable televisions boomed here. Magnavox and later its processor Philips Consumer Electronics Company, soon became the county’s largest employer, and by far and its most influential and long-lasting business enterprise, a status which grew and continued to hold for some five decades beginning in the early 1950s, under a succession of ownership. It was the year 1974, the Magnavox Company was bought by the world renowned North American affiliate of N.V. Philips, of the Netherlands, this was a world-renowned and Dutch-owned and multinational television and electronics giant. From 1974 to 1997, Philips Consumer Electronics of North America owned and operated the company, including the community’s largest manufacturing facility, known today as the Five Rivers Plant, but was known under Philips Consumer Electronics as Plant 3, which was located between Snapps Ferry Road and what is known as Industrial Road. At its peak, under Philips Electronics in 1989, the company, which manufactured color television sets here under brand names including Sylvania, Magnavox, Crosley, and Philips, had a record of over 4,600 American employees.

The year was 1996 and Philips Electronics plant in Greenville Tennessee was Sold
The year was 1996 the place was Knoxville, Tennessee, and the Philips Consumer Electronics Company had reached a sales agreement in with GC Capital for the complete sale of its newly renovated, and state-of-the art Philips Consumer Electronics Plant in Greenville Tennessee, which was a manufacturing facility for Sylvania , Magnavox, and Crosley televisions, and countless other made in America electronics. The Philips Consumer Electronics sale has been in the works ever since early fall in 1996. A spokesman for Philips Consumer Electronics stated in a press interview that with the industrywide downturn in consoles, and tabletop television sales, the Philips Consumer Electronics plant in Greenville Tennessee has been under-utilized in the past few years. The spokesman for the company stated that Philips Consumer Electronics is looking at the reality that they have a large modern state of the arts facility, and growing cost and overhead. By selling the assembly plant in Greenville, the company will have better a profit margins in the upcoming year. The Greenville Tennessee facility, known as Plant 3, was well known up to the year 1996 for manufacturing Magnavox projection televisions, and was contracted to manufacture Curtis Mathes projection televisions, plus for many years they made a complete line of direct-view televisions in sizes ranging from 25-inches and above, They also manufacture and build components for LCD projectors, and the just released Philips-Magnavox web-based television and internet terminal components were also assembled at the plant. There are over 1 million television sets, and consoles manufactured annually at the Greenville Tennessee plant. Tragically approximately 1,800 unionized Philips-Magnavox workers that were in 1996 employed at the Philips Consumer Electronics plant will be affected by this massive sale. After the Fall 1996 sell of the Greenville Plant they will no longer to be on the Philips-Magnavox payroll.
