Pantheon Industries is a multinational conglomerate based in Caphiria. It acts as main holding company for a number of subsidiaries, offering products in the chemical, life-sciences, materials science, pharmaceuticals, and energy sector. Pantheon has 100,000 employees worldwide with an annual revenue (2030) of $90 billion.
Pantheon emerged in the 1880's from the Katta Fishing Corp. which had gained immense value after gaining a monopoly on the global tuna market by exploiting fishing zones in the Omnian Sea. It was owned by Georgis Kattapoulos who had previously published his philosophical work "Society at the Dawn of the 20th Century", after which he began to restructure his company, rebranding it to Pantheon while beginning to acquire not only smaller competitors but also businesses which he deemed visionary or "seminal for society". By the time of Georgis' death in 1922, Pantheon had incorporated nearly all agricultural and life-science companies until an antitrust suit forced the company to split apart in 1977.
Today, Pantheon Industries has diversified its portfolio and is still dominant in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and bio-science sectors. The current chairman of Pantheon Industries is Oiksi Iivostner, who was appointed in 2021 after the ousting of the former chairman Bob Dole.
