Alcon?? Who are they?...

I just bought my C'dale F300, and so I am new to mtb. But, I was looking at my bike and noticed the frame said Alcon on the sticker. Well I saw the same thing on the Subaru WRC car,(if you aren't into rally, just ignore this post, anyway just wondering...did they do the welding? Is it the same company as the sticker on the WRC car? Kind of a stupid question but there it is.
