What does Telamon mean?
Telamon is the Greek word for support. The column, the foundation of the company’s logo, represents the foundation of the business, which is providing support to its customers.
The column has four beams that represent Telamon’s business philosophy of H2S2: Honesty with our customers promotes harmony in our relationships. Simplicity in an age of complexity leads to speed in our solutions. The logo was inspired by an image of interlocking hands. The image reflects how employees and technologies work together to provide support for clients.
The color red was chosen to symbolize prosperity. In the Asian culture, red has always been associated with happiness, wealth and abundance. The color green was chosen to symbolize the growth of an everlasting relationship.
