"Our vision is to be the partner of choice for delivering, managing and servicing assets - Carillion has a unique approach that builds long-term relationships with our customers based on our values of openness, collaboration, mutual dependency, professional delivery, sustainable, profitable growth, and innovation."
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).
