OSRAM begins OLED production

30 August 2011 11.00 BST

(Germany) - OSRAM celebrates milestone in manufacturing of organic light emitting diodes with a new production line in Regensburg, Germany dedicated to OLED production.

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF - Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung) played an important role with its OLED 2015 initiative. The purpose of OLED 2015 is to push the development of organic electronics forward.

“Today Regensburg is sending out an important message for the hightech location of Germany and the safeguarding of high-quality jobs,” said Wolfgang Dehen, chairman of the Managing Board of OSRAM AG. “The inauguration of this OLED production plant in Regensburg proves Germany's leading position in the introduction of this future technology,” said the German Federal Minister for Education and Research, Annette Schavan. “This is also a success for our innovation policy and good news for consumers.”

Over the course of one year, OSRAM has invested approximately 20 million euros in building up the production site. Currently it employs more than 220 people at its Regensburg West location. The new pilot production line enables OSRAM to manufacture transparent OLED-panels, to double the brightness of the OLEDs and to further strengthen durability and efficiency. In the last stage of expansion the manufacturing costs are expected to decline by 90 percent.

“Two years ago, we were the first company to offer serial OLED-products on the market. The new production is a major leap on the way to widespread use,” Martin Goetzeler, Member of the Managing
Board and Chief Operating Officer of OSRAM AG, stated.

OSRAM is the only company with production sites for both LED and OLED in Europe. Today, two thirds of OSRAM’s investments in research and development are made in the field of LED and OLED. In the past five years OSRAM has invested approximately 50 million euros in research and development of OLED. As with the light diode, OSRAM also covers all integration steps with regard to OLED. The portfolio includes OLED panels and modules as well as complete luminaires.
