Paragon Packaging initially started as a silk screener of plastic bottles in 1985 to meet the needs of the janitorial industry. In the 1990’s we took things a bit further and began manufacturing plastic bottles.
Starting in 1997 current management began a series of acquisitions and growth strategies that expanded the business to include an additional facility in Houston. Today Paragon manufactures in excess of 35 million bottles at two facilities in Texas as well as decorating better than half of them. Our plants are located in Mansfield, Texas (just outside of Ft. Worth) and Houston.
Today’s business focus meets the needs of various industries and markets -from large Fortune 500 companies to small local entrepeneurs with great ideas. We currently serve the paint, specialty chemical, janitorial, pool and spa, bottle distributors and various food products industries.
