OSRAM – the number 1 worldwide
Precision, quality and innovation in all fields of automotive lighting.
In more than 110 years, OSRAM has become the world market leader in automotive lighting. We are a valued and trusted partner of the world’s foremost automobile manufacturers. In fact, each year, half of all passenger vehicles manufactured wordwide are equipped with OSRAM lights.
We improve our products continually. As a supplier to original equipment manufacturers (OEM), we maintain a rigorous quality-testing program, so that the right product is always close at hand for our customers, year after year. Headquartered in Munich, Germany, OSRAM is a global player with a presence in many countries - wherever customers are, we can support their needs.
In 1925, Osram showcased the world a simple, yet ingenious solution – a lamp with two filaments, one for dipped beam and one for high beam. The BILUX® lamp was born and specifically registered to OSRAM. This enabled all the functions, which previously took up a lot of space and required complex mechanical designs, to be combined in one single light source. The lamp produced two beams with different strengths and angles in one single reflector.
Headlight manufacturers reacted quickly, and this technology became the typical light in all conventional vehicles in the 60s and even the 70s. It’s still available today in its original form. The first generation of the OSRAM Bilux® lamps generally had a P45t base and an electrical output of 40/45 watts.

Trust through monitoring
OSRAM is well-known as a trustworthy brand with a portfolio of premium-quality products. Sadly, that fact has garnered the attention of manufacturers who flood the market with fakes. Imitations of OSRAM products and packages are not only a commercial problem, but also a safety risk for our customers.
The most frequently imitated are OSRAM xenon products. In order to significantly minimize the number of counterfeit products, we have developed the OSRAM Trust Program. Now our customers themselves can quickly check online whether they have purchased an OSRAM original xenon lamp.The OSRAM Trust Program

Environmental protection at OSRAM goes far beyond compliance with the law: our production is designed to be resource-efficient, targeted to conserve energy, and reduce packaging material.
Our environmental management system, certified according to ISO 14001, guarantees that consistently and continuously.
