Who we are

OSRAM Continental – OC develops innovative automotive lighting to meet the needs of modern mobility concepts. Our mission is to shape the future of automotive lighting and to develop it further with smart systems.

As a joint venture between OSRAM and Continental, each with a 50 percent stake, we combine the expertise and experience of two leading technology companies in the automotive sector. By combining light, electronics and software, we create solutions for better visibility, efficiency and functionality, design and individuality and communication with other road users.

Starting from classic areas such as headlights, rear clusters and interior lighting, we are expanding our portfolio to include smart, high-performance products – for connected, safe, personalized and sustainable mobility of the future. That is what we are working toward as a global company with headquarters in Munich and around 1,500 employees worldwide.

“With our products we want to set new standards and not only make perfect, smart vehicle lighting seamlessly available but also turn every trip into a unique experience.”
