OSRAM brand licensing program

Thank you for your interest in the OSRAM Brand Licensing Program. Appreciation for the OSRAM brand extends far beyond those who use our lighting products.

If you would like to learn more about brand licensing with OSRAM, please continue to read. If you would like to receive the OSRAM Brand Licensing Application form, please contact brandlicensing@ams-osram.com directly.

In addition to our OSRAM Brand Licensing Program, we also offer the opportunity to some companies to participate in our Partner Program, and/or to showcase our product as an ingredient in your product, via our ams OSRAM technologized-signet. If you’re interested in one of these opportunities, please also contact us via brandlicensing@ams-osram.com.

Through licensing our OSRAM brand we continue to build and enhance brand equity and drive consumer loyalty throughout all touch points in their homes, cars and lives. Today we manage licensing programs within lighting and automotive categories across the United States, China, and currently evaluating global opportunities.

Building a brand takes time and investment. We help accelerate the process and create the best conditions for success by offering access to our recognized brand. Becoming a brand partner means faster time to market and a greater chance of regional and global brand success.

The OSRAM Brand Licensing team creates category extensions through licensing the OSRAM brand. Our brand licensing program is strongly aligned with the core business and focuses on creating quality brand extensions in lighting, automotive, wellbeing, sustainability, Do It Yourself products, safety apparel, horticulture and more. 

The OSRAM brand sets a benchmark. OSRAM and its orange & white light bulb-icon are synonymous with German quality, technology and innovation. It signals engineering precision and builds on our heritage. 

Given OSRAM’s expertise in driving lamp technology for over a century and its leading position in the transition to LED, one might think the brand would only apply to lamps. Nothing could be further from the truth; Primarily focused on semiconductor-based technologies, OSRAM products are used in highly diverse applications ranging from virtual reality to autonomous driving and from smart phones to smart and connected lighting solutions in buildings and cities. Whatever technology is state-of-the-art, it was driven by the OSRAM brand or developed by it. The same quality and care that have maintained the name through decades are now reflected in a comprehensive program called the OSRAM BRAND LICENSING PROGRAM. 

The OSRAM brand is owned by ams OSRAM. ams acquired OSRAM, based in Munich, Germany in 2020, because of its leading global high-tech position with a history dating back more than 110 years. OSRAM uses the endless possibilities of light to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities. OSRAM’s innovations enable people all over the world not only to see better, but also to communicate, travel, work and live better.

Today we offer the opportunity to join the OSRAM Brand Licensing Program to carefully selected and specialized licensees. Continuous investment in the OSRAM brand by ams OSRAM and the Brand Partners increases the OSRAM brand visibility across the world. Together we drive sales, decrease risks, save investments, enable cross- and upselling, create access to new markets and continuously strengthen the brand. We are partners for mutual success. Every single partner is dedicated to the OSRAM brand promise. 

OSRAM uses the infinite possibilities of light to improve the quality of life for individuals and communities. Use of the OSRAM brand will grant immediate visibility and awareness.

  • Drive sales
  • Reduce risks, save investments
  • Justification price premium
  • Cross- and up-selling opportunities
  • Access to new markets

  • Flexibility: OSRAM licensees retain product design and control. Once a product category is assigned to a licensee, that licensee is completely responsible for the design, manufacturing, distribution, and sales of that product.
