About Wolff

While studying the beneficial effects of ultraviolet light on athletes, German scientist Friedrich Wolff noticed an interesting side effect - tanned skin. Realizing the appeal of a beautiful tan, Wolff founded the indoor tanning industry. His research led to development of indoor tanning equipment and lamp technology. Called "the father of indoor tanning," Wolff brought his European technology to the United States in 1978. He set the standard for the industry with specialized lamps and a reflector system that was ideally suited to indoor tanning. Today, the company operates in North America and Western Europe, and has patent licensees in Belgium, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States.


That's right. Wolff System Technology Corporation is celebrating its 30th anniversary. In keeping with the newest technology, we are excited to introduce environmentally-responsible sunlamps. Many of our lamps are now qualified as "Green", meaning they can be treated as solid waste instead of hazardous waste when they finally reach end-of-life. While we believe that recycling is the best way to dispose of used lamps, Wolff's green difference is an important step in protecting the environment for ourselves and for future generations.
