The development of the electronics sector in Poland dates back to the 1930s. During this period lighting equipment was manufactured by Polskie Zakłady Philips in Warsaw and electronic transmitting and microwave lamps were economic produced by Zakłady Elektronowe Lamina in Piaseczno. The post-war years proved that electronics, as a facilitator of technological and civilisational progress, had become one of the fastest growing economic sectors, worldwide. With the fall of communism at the beginning of the 1990s, the electronics industry became a focal point of interest for many foreign companies that have since become permanent fixtures on the Polish market. These include Schneider Electric, Alcatel-Lucent or the aforementioned Philips. Today, the electronics industry remains one of the fastest-growing segments of the Polish economy.
