OSRAM light bulbs are widely used all over the world, and especially in European light fixtures.
Based in Germany, OSRAM and its wholly owned North American subsidiary OSRAM Sylvania are one of the top three manufacturers in the world. They manufacture and distribute many thousands of different light bulb varieties for virtually all applications. They fall under the Siemens Corporation, a global giant in the world of manufacturing and commerce.

Even though you may not be in Europe, you may find yourself in need of European light bulbs. The biggest difference between these and North American bulbs is the voltage rating. Since the USA and Canada use 120 volt electrical service, the bulbs produced for this market are typically 120 or 130 volt. The European bulbs are made with 220, 230, or 240 volt ratings. Due to the large difference between the two, they are not interchangeable.
OSRAM bulbs can be counted on for top quality. In some cases, you may pay a little more for one, but it's well worth it in durability and longevity. Second to quality is the sheer number of product options available from OSRAM. There are many thousands of light bulbs, tubes, and diodes in the catalog. There's always room for innovation and creativity, too, as is shown by the innovative DOT-it portable lights, the dark sky saving Night Breaker line, or the newly designed TopLED lights.
When you choose OSRAM, you are choosing a worldwide leader and a premium lighting product.
