Wila lands £2.4m Middle East contract

Anglo-German lighting manufacturer Wila has been awarded its largest-ever contract by an unnamed client in the Middle East.

The project is the result of four years of hard work, says Mike Collett

The €3m (£2.4m) project, which includes around 22,000 CFL downlights, has been designed in the UK, with products manufactured in Germany.

Mike Collett, CEO of Wila, said: ‘This project represents four years of hard work and cooperation with the installer, the specifiers and our representatives in the market.’

Wila’s past projects in the Middle East include Dubai Airport, the headquarters of Kuwait Petroleum and the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.

The company said it has seen growth in the first quarter of 2012 despite tough market conditions.
