Sean Kelly and Avery Long were classmates working on their Electrical Engineering degrees back in 1995. Both of us went our separate ways when we graduated in 1997. In 2011, we started working together as professionals. During that time we found that we shared a common love for electronics while noticing that we had a great synergy in our approach to product design and development. So we founded Red Coral Technology in 2014 with the intent to capitalize on that synergy.
Sean has had a passion for salt water reef tanks and raising coral since 1998. From that passion he learned to cultivate and propagate corals for the hobbyist to reduce the need of harvesting wild corals. To that end, he has been providing coral frags to others and to his local fish store.
With all of the hype concerning the internet of things and all such devices communicating with each other we realized Sean’s passion for coral was not only a great cause, but a perfect metaphor for what we wanted our focus to be.
Coral is simultaneously a single animal and yet an organism made up of many individual animals. All of the individual animals work together to create a system that is conducive to the success of the whole. That is exactly what we are trying to create. We are developing multiple individual products/solutions that start out as a singular, simple purpose, concept. At the same time each concept can be utilized such that it will fit into/form a larger system. The intent is to make an ecosystem of electronic devices that form a collective array of solutions all working together for the good of the system. Hence the metaphor relating our concept to coral.
With time, like multiple corals creating a reef, our product lines will grow, develop and merge into a new world that solves your problems and adds some elegance to your life. If we do our job right, with a little luck, we can contribute to your world and at the same time help save the oceans great beauties. Because we want to give back 2% of our profit to organizations dedicated to creating artificial reefs we need your help for us to grow.
Why Red Coral you may ask. When Sean was in Okinawa scuba diving many many years ago, he learned of a special coral. It is rare because it grows slowly and it is so deep. The Japanese simply call it red coral. It is very valuable for its beauty and rarity. So goes our products. We don’t want to rush products to market just to make money. We want to take the time to develop something special, unique, valuable and most of all pleasurable to our clients. Simplicity of use and yet having inherently valuable technology is our goal. We want our brand to stand above the fray because of the rare level of attention to quality and customer service.
Propagating solutions for your world and ours.
