Paragon Begins Construction to Expand Kiln Factory

This is just behind the main Paragon factory. The sheet metal wall covering is going up.

07/26/2012

We have just received a permit from the City of Mesquite, Texas for construction of a 20,000-square-foot building. The new building will be located behind the 52,000-square-foot kiln factory. The lot has been leveled and is ready for construction.

“We ran out of storage space in the main factory,” said John S. Hohenshelt, president of Paragon, “so we have been storing raw materials in trailers. Our new building will give us room to expand. We are taking this opportunity to improve the workflow through our existing facility by changing the layout. We are continuing to grow our production facility to meet the needs of our customers, and we are grateful to them for making this possible.

“We are going to paint a unicorn on the new building,” added John with a laugh, “because the permitting process through the city has taken so long that the building seems mythical, like the unicorn.”

With more factory space available, Paragon will add a third computer-controlled brick grooving CNC machine and a fourth sheet metal plasma cutter.

Putting the finishing touches on the sheet metal wall.
