Founded as a family company in 1948, Paragon Industries, L.P. manufactures high quality top- and front-loading pottery kilns in Mesquite, Texas USA. We take the time to listen to our customers and improve our products to meet the changing needs of the potter. The drive for continual design improvements has made Paragon an industry standard for kiln design, as many of our ideas have been subsequently used by our competitors. We use high quality suppliers--Orton Ceramics, for example, makes our digital controllers. We know your time and materials are valuable, so we continually develop new products that ensure consistent and repeatable firings. We have two full-time design engineers and full sheet metal manufacturing capability in the factory for fast design and manufacture of custom kilns.
