Founded in 1976 by Jorg Wolff and headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, Cosmedico has an acclaimed tradition of engineering excellence and technological innovation. Success did not come easily. It evolved with strict adherence to three simple principles: design for performance; manufacture for quality; price for value. These principles have guided Cosmedico from the early development of the world's first sunlamps to the introduction of our path-breaking VHR system followed by the revolutionary patented 9K90 series of lamps.
Although Cosmedico has a wide-ranging record of technological innovation, our work with low-pressure fluorescent sunlamps has revolutionized the indoor sun tanning industry. Starting in Europe in the 1970s with the introduction of the first S-class' commercial-grade sunlamp, Cosmedico took the industry to the next level with the development of the CosmoLux phosphor in 1984. Today, our four major families of low-pressure sunlamps -- CosmoLux, Goldarium, Hi-Tan, and CosmoStar-- represent the high performance choice for successful salons around the world.
