Vision & Values


To establish Specon as the leading diversified international mechanical, electrical, plumbing, energy & power company in the Middle East and North Africa.


Our core strength lies in our culture and our values embodied in the Greek word ‘philotimo’.
Philotimo (also spelled filotimo; Greek: φιλότιμο) is a Greek noun translating to ‘love of honour’. However, philotimo is almost impossible to translate sufficiently as it describes a complex array of virtues which signify collective work spirit, pride and dignity, self-respect, and getting it done regardless of all obstacles.

Philotimo is one of the highest Greek virtues, the standard for family and social living; the core concept is that of respect and walking in right paths. In its simplest form, the term means ‘doing good’, actions that ensure that one’s behaviour be exemplary and demonstrate one’s personality and the way one was raised. Philotimo to Greek culture is essentially a way of life.

Our culture of ‘philotimo’ stems from our company origin and management, and infuses all facets of our operations.

Our core values of,

  • Quality (love of workmanship, taking pride in our job)
  • Integrity (love of ethos, the way we conduct business)
  • Safety (love of human life)
  • Excellence (love to do it better)

are quintessential to our culture and deeply interwoven into the fabric of the company, defining the way we serve our clients, the way we nourish and develop our people, and the way we interact with the wider community.
