OFFTEC Iraq has solidified partnership agreements with key international lighting manufacturers covering Jordan and Iraq and is currently working on many construction projects across Iraq, mainly in Baghdad and Erbil. With an emphasis on high-end European lighting solutions, the company presents various options tailored to diverse market demands. The scope of offerings spans indoor, outdoor and façade lighting solutions; acoustic solutions; linear and magnetic lighting; warehouse and industrial space lighting; hotel and restaurant lighting; decorative lighting; and customized lighting solutions designed to address specific requirements.

Meanwhile, WATCO recently secured a contract with Baghdad’s largest mall, overseeing the supply of lighting solutions across its expansive premises. Collaborating closely with local and regional designers and electromechanical consultants, the company developed tailored lighting solutions for the mall. Through consistent coordination with engineering and construction teams, WATCO ensured a benchmark-setting implementation never before seen in Iraq. This project not only showcased the exceptional capabilities of WATCO, but was also a catalyst for expanding OFFTEC Iraq’s product offerings to other ventures in the country.
