The Munich-based lighting expert announced that it has opted for Germany to be a suitable location for its high-tech strategy innovations.
“The plan for Germany is one of our most important strategic decisions of recent years. By expanding the areas of autonomous driving, digitalization and LED technology, which will become increasingly significant, we are making a commitment to Germany as a high-tech location,” said Olaf Berlien, CEO of OSRAM Licht AG.
According to the news release, Osram continues its transformation by establishing state-of-the-art technology at its German sites, as discussed in the ‘Zukunftskonzept OSRAM’ (Future Concept OSRAM) agreed to by the company and the employee representatives. It aims to effect transformation in the company’s growth path, employment structure and rate.
Osram unveiled further details of its ‘Zukunftskonzept OSRAM,’ which is vital for the future development of the company and its German plants into a provider of cutting-edge digital lighting solutions.
“The Schwabmünchen site, where the company used to produce pre-material for light bulbs, among other things, will become a facility for LED pre-materials, which are produced in a cleanroom,” said Osram.
“The Herbrechtingen site will remain the leadplant for specialty lighting worldwide. The Eichstätt plant is experiencing high capacity utilization due to the strong demand for cinema lamps and at the Regensburg site LED capacities will be significantly expanded over the next few years. A comprehensive production and future program was recently agreed upon with the workers council, to provide future viability of the Traunreut plant.”
