Business Support

Paragon offer a design, supply and installation service for their roof trusses, spandrel joints and floor joist systems to all sectors of the construction industry, from large-volume UK house builders to local builders. Based in Resolven Business Park, their customer base spreads as far west as Pembrokeshire and along the M4 to Swindon in the east.

Trading for less than 3 years, this SME has already built an impressive client list, including the likes of well-known house builders Persimmon Homes, Bellway, St Modwyn and Edenstone. The company’s expansion has been so rapid that they’ve already outgrown their first unit on the business park and have achieved additional capacity by leasing a second. Currently, their order book shows work is secured for the next two years.

Ian Ferris, a Director at Paragon, believes the outstanding business support the company’s received from Neath Port Talbot Council since day one has been the key to their fast growth.

“Without the help of Neath Port Talbot Council, I don’t think we would have got to the stage we are with the business as quickly, it would have taken far longer.”
