During the 1970s and 1980s Thorn Lighting was entrusted with the supply of quality lighting to Iraq. Based on our past involvement in the construction of Iraq we have a continuing commitment to assist in the country'sreconstruction.
Hospitals, city streets, airports, schools, offices, power stations, communication centres, refineries, and desalination plants…these are only a few of the aspects of daily life where lighting has played its inseparable part in the development of Iraq’s economy.
In Iraq - as throughout the Middle East - our work has given us first-hand participation in the pioneering development of rapid advances in lighting schemes in this area that are both original and striking, as well as totally functional and effective. In the process we have gained an exceptional knowledge and understanding of the region’s special needs.
Our direct experience of the area is an added strength in the capabilities which have earned us a reputation for innovation dating back 75 years - and which have made us one of the world’s leading lighting groups. We have a broad and comprehensive range of luminaires and lighting systems; international resources for the design and manufacture of fittings, particularly from our factory in the UK; and total expertise in the planning and implementation of lighting schemes - from the initial concept to specifying the equipment. We provide the complete lighting solution, from a single, dedicated source of supply.
Safety, reliability and quality
We make it our business at Thorn Lighting to evaluate every facet of a proposed scheme; to assess the challenges and objectives of the installation - and look beyond them. Consulting our designers and engineers at the earliest possible stage often means that they will evolve solutions that not only meet the original specification, but also give a project the added dimension which turns an otherwise orthodox scheme into a commercial and technical coup.
In the most demanding environments - oil installations, petrochemical plants, power stations, airport complexes, for example - lighting has to be considered integrally with the complete operating environment. It must satisfy the same criteria for safety and reliability in conditions of heat, corrosive atmospheres, inflammable gases…it must safeguard the different get interdependent needs of airline pilots and traffic controllers. All these applications - and more - call for specialist knowledge in how to make lighting work to the very best advantage.
Taking advantage of the extra capability and experience of Thorn Lighting means that you are involving a substantial international supplier with strong local representation in all areas of the Gulf. For Thorn, global business has become an increasing priority to the point where 70 per cent of our £340 million sales now come from outside the UK. Our Dubai office is directly linked to our UK Centre and thereby into our network as a whole. You get the advantage of consultation, delivery and technical capabilities - and the support of Thorn’s customer service, from lighting visualisations to commissioning.
Whatever the location, whatever the application, if it’s a question of lighting there is one sure answer…Thorn.
