Working at the cutting edge of technology
Carallon was founded at the start of 2004 by seven engineers and developers who’d previously worked together at another iconic UK company, innovative lighting control specialist Flying Pig Systems, originator of the Wholehog lighting consoles.
From the start Carallon was set up as a business owned and run by its employees, allowing them to do the kind of exciting, innovative product development work they enjoyed while keeping some control of their own destiny.
Over 16 years the company has grown substantially from those 7 to 70+ employees, and has spawned sister companies Pharos, Brompton and SixEye - but the essence of what Carallon is about has remained unchanged.
In 2020 the primary shareholders sold their controlling shares to an Employee Ownership Trust, so that for years to come the company can continue its original vision of being owned by and run for the benefit of its employees.
