Why is The Big 5 Solar called The Big 5?
Back in 1979 a construction exhibition was launched in Dubai and it represented the five biggest sectors of the construction industry:
- Water technology & environment
- Air conditioning & refrigeration
- Cleaning & Maintenance
- Glass & Metal
The show has since expanded and today we have launched The Big 5 Solar. Dedicated in providing solar solutions to meet construction needs.
