About Us


Tungsram, an iconic name, returned to the global market in 2018 as a premium innovative European technology brand following the acquisition of GE Lighting’s general lighting business in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Turkey as well as GE’s global automotive operation.

Innovation is our heritage.

Originally established in 1896, the company is a brainchild of the 2nd industrial revolution that gave rise to the electrification of the world. From its earliest beginnings through GE’s acquisition of the brand in 1989 and to the present day, Tungsram has systematically created new solutions, primarily around its core lighting and telephone technology businesses, as well as medical and radio tubes and television, often leading to exponential sales growth. Today, faced with the opportunities and challenges of the 4th industrial revolution, Tungsram Group invests into future-safe technologies and dynamically growing global market segments such as smart solutions, smart cities and indoor farming while still strengthening its core lighting business. Every member of the Tungsram team works to create affordable, sustainable technology-based solutions for the continuously urbanizing world with the strategic goal of eventually creating happiness. A smart, bright future – see how we are seeing it.
