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.
Wolff System Technology Corporation is celebrating its 30th anniversary. In keeping with the newest technology, the company is excited to introduce environmentally-responsible sunlamps. Many of their 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.
