Long History, Global Reach
Agilent's history can be traced to the 1960s when, as Hewlett-Packard, we entered the analytical chemistry market with our first gas chromatograph. Shortly thereafter, we expanded into mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography, and we've never looked back. With an HQ in the heart of the Silicon Valley and over 16,000 employees worldwide, we are now serving customers in over 110 countries.
