From day one, HP broke new ground by refusing to accept the
status quo. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard created more than an
audio oscillator in their Palo Alto garage. They built a way of
doing business—the HP Way. What started in Bill and Dave’s garage
still thrives today. We continue to change the world with our
products, our people, and our business practices. Reinvention is
the key. It is the accelerant to growth. It drives us to create
experiences that amaze.
Keep reinventing. It’s what we do.
