    The history of Philips shows how an industrial network or complex needs to co-ordinate various flows of raw materials, intermediate and final products, energy and labour. In this article, the co-evolution of this industrial network and various infrastructural networks is analysed for three periods focusing subsequently on the local, national and global levels. Finally, the impact of these developments on the societal environment of the industrial complex is briefly addressed.
