History of R&S Robertson

Project Support

R&S Robertson’s extensive project portfolio, spanning both the UK and international locations, has equipped us with invaluable expertise in consulting on diverse lighting projects. We recognise that lighting solutions in hotel contracts must not only be robust to withstand rigorous use but also tailor-made to meet specific project demands.

Our collaborative partnerships with production facilities across Europe enable us to offer a wide spectrum of contract lighting styles, ranging from timeless traditional chandeliers to sleek and contemporary fittings. In essence, we are well-equipped to cater to a broad spectrum of projects, whether they prioritise cost-efficiency or design excellence.


Designers are offered a choice between our adaptable standard lighting solutions, which can be customised with various finishes, or the option to collaborate with us in crafting entirely bespoke lighting pieces. For over 14 years, R&S Robertson has fostered a strong partnership with our primary manufacturing partner in Europe. This strategic alliance allows us to create custom contract lighting without the quantity and lead-time constraints often associated with production in the Far East.

Our dedicated team of consultants and in-house product development experts work in close harmony with specialised craftsmen to ensure that our lighting fixtures are not only visually appealing but also functionally exceptional, maintaining the highest standards of quality.

Moreover, every fixture undergoes quality control processes within the ISO9001 accredited manufacturing facility. We perform these checks again upon their arrival in Edinburgh before distributing them to projects, ensuring high quality craftsmanship and reliability. Our commitment to excellence is further underscored by our 24-hour call-off service, guaranteeing that your projects receive timely and impeccable lighting solutions.


At R&S Robertson, we take immense pride in our close-knit team and the values that underpin our work. Our unwavering commitment to fostering strong relationships is at the very heart of our company ethos. We stand by the principles of honesty and reliability, qualities that shine through in every aspect of our operations.

Throughout the entire project lifecycle, from the initial stages of specification and design to providing dedicated aftercare, we make it our priority to be readily available and assist in any way we can.

Furthermore, our relentless pursuit of excellence drives us to continually enhance both our service and product offerings. By constantly striving for improvement and innovation, we not only meet the evolving needs of our clients but also solidify our position as industry leaders. This commitment to progress is not just a goal but a fundamental aspect of our identity at R&S Robertson, ensuring that we consistently deliver exceptional results and remain a trusted partner in the world of contract lighting.
