2011 was a special year for us. The Phillips Company celebrated its 25th year in business. The company (operated as PDI) was founded in 1986 by Sam Phillips. He and his son, Vyran, ran the business quite successfully until January 2006, at which time Sam's daughter, Valerie Phillips, purchased it from him.
In the past five years, The Phillips Company has accomplished much.
