The traditional brand Osram

Osram is today one of the leading lighting manufacturers in the world. When started in 1906 as light bulb manufacturer, the global group is a high-tech company in the lighting industry, offering bulbs for general lighting at home, for stadiums, airports and cell phone display. In the field of vehicle lighting and sensors for parking assistance, Osram is a leader in research and development. In addition to the pursuit of economic and technological progress, Osram also looks after the holistic environmental protection and sustainability of the products as very important. The company has therefore introduced in 1998 environmental guidelines, from the environmentally friendly production of lamps to the development of energy saving bulbs.

Osram - synonymous with light since 1906

On April 17, 1906 the Osram brand was registered under the trademark WZ 86924 in the trade mark register with the Imperial Patent Office in Berlin. The name was a neologism composed of the then current filament materials: osmium and tungsten (Wolfram in German). In 1919 we find the birth of Osram GmbH limited partnership, the famous orange-white-blue brand image with the light bulb, which to this day - with a few changes - identifies the products from Osram. The stylised lamp is not only a universal symbol of light and lighting, but also for good ideas.

Osram lamps: As clear as day

With little energy provide as much light as possible, is one of the maxims of lamp manufacturer Osram. Right from the beginning Osram provided the development and production of intelligent bulbs, i.e. bulbs that have a low energy absorption to provide a maximum amount of light and in the manufacture are more environmentally friendly. In 1985 Osram was the first manufacturer who introduced integrated electronic ballast (EVG) into the screw of energy-saving lamps. Today, energy-efficient bulbs such as energy-saving lamps or LEDs make up 70% of the sales of the company. Expenditure on research and development amounted to 5.5% of sales and make Osram also in the field of opto-electronic semiconductor light sources such as LEDs, one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of high-tech light sources.
