Rooted in Celtic mythology, our corporate trademark was inspired by the god “Taranis”, a deity representing strength, thunder and the wheel. This symbolism is further echoed in Taranis’ slogan “Built on Strength,” which exemplifies Taranis’ strong foundation of skilled employees, vast industry knowledge & experience, and quality products & services.
