Carillion is a leading integrated support services company.
"Our vision is to be the trusted partner for providing services, delivering infrastructure and creating places that bring lasting benefits to our customers and the communities in which we live and work."
The history of Carillion traces to the companies that had become
part of the Tarmac Group by the late 1990s: Tarmac Construction,
Wimpey Construction, Cubitts and Mitchell Construction.
In 1999 the Tarmac Group demerged into a building materials company ('Tarmac') and a company focused on support services and construction services ('Carillion').
After 1999 Carillion has gone on to acquire further well-known companies: Mowlem (acquired in 2006), Alfred McAlpine (acquired in 2008), Vanbots (acquired in 2008) and Eaga (acquired in 2011).
