OSRAM UK Overview
The early days of Osram in the UK can be traced back to 1908, where light bulb and glass production for the first electric bulbs began. Osram manufactured light bulbs for consumer and commercial use in the UK until the year 2000, when all UK manufacturing finally stopped. Osram maintains sales and customer service offices in the UK.
When it comes to the automotive division, OSRAM is the world’s number one in automotive lighting, making 3 million automotive bulbs a day. Over 50% of all cars have OSRAM bulbs fitted as standard. OSRAM is specified and trusted by all of the leading car and truck manufacturers and has an unrivalled reputation for producing ‘Original Equipment’ quality bulbs using the highest quality precision materials. OSRAM is at the forefront of innovation; over 40% of products sold have been developed in the last five years.
OSRAM is setting the pace in researching and developing new types of lighting systems incl. LED. The result is a series of technologies that are economical yet powerful, refined yet simple, enhancing both comfort and safety on the roads. From 2011 all vehicles manufactured have to be fitted with DLR (Day Light Running) lights as standard. Most of these DLR lights will be incorporated into headlight systems and will use LED technology. For the aftermarket, our products meet the high quality standards that automotive manufacturers demand for their new cars on the production line. OSRAM OE quality products are specified and trusted by the vehicle manufacturers worldwide – why trust anyone else.
