The Philco Corporation was bought by the Ford Motor Company in 1961. In 1966, the branding was changed to "Philco-Ford".
Ford sold Philco to GTE in 1974. The company was acquired from GTE by Philips in 1981 so that Phillips could gain the rights to use its trademark in the United States. Eventually, the Philco brand name was discontinued. The Philco name is presently owned by Philips in the United States, and Electrolux elsewhere.
The Philco name, continues to be used in Argentina and elsewhere in South America under various companies.
