OSRAM SYLVANIA's leadership in the lighting industry results from
our proud legacy, which extends back to the dawn of the twentieth
century, and points the way for continued success in years to
come. In fact, the history of our company parallels the evolution
of electric lighting and its technological advances over the
course of the twentieth century. It's a story rich in scientific
discovery and successful entrepreneurship, which spans both sides
of the Atlantic.
In recent decades,
SYLVANIA and OSRAM developed lighting products with longer life,
better light and greater energy efficiency. Important advances
were made in the development of discharge lamp technology. In the
1980s, the SYLVANIA Octron® fluorescent lamp and the OSRAM Dulux®
compact fluorescent lamp represented major innovations.
OSRAM SYLVANIA in its
current form was created in January 1993, when OSRAM GmbH acquired
the SYLVANIA lighting and precision materials businesses in North
America from GTE. The company remains a global leader in
innovative lighting products and services.
