Speclight associates was formed to deliver cutting edge market representation, project management and specification-grade lighting solutions to lighting stakeholders across the middle east.
For decades the middle east lighting market has proven to be amongst the most challenging for specification-grade manufacturers to penetrate.
beyond the competitive market dynamics, developing transparent and collaborative relationships across the middle eastern lighting supply chain has often proven to be the achilles heel of many of the world's foremost lighting manufacturers.
It is therefore out of this opaque and complex reality that speclight associates was born, recognizing an as yet unmet niche for a progressive and dynamic partner across the entire arabian lighting spectrum.
