About Paragon Kilns
Who We Are
Founded as a family company in 1948, Paragon Industries, L.P. is the leading manufacturer of electric kilns and furnaces. We focus on designing high quality standard and custom kilns for the ceramics, glass, porcelain, pottery, heat treating and metal art clay markets. We focus on quality and innovation to assure you that your Paragon kiln will produce reliable and consistent results. Paragon has invested for a long term commitment in the kiln market by developing a 52,000 square foot manufacturing facility staffed with over 70 full time employees, including two research and development engineers and five customer support agents.
Together with over 200 knowledgeable distribution partners operating in 17 countries, Paragon is able to deliver a more extensive product line than any competitor in our markets. Our post sales support includes long-term availability on replacement parts and educational seminars on kiln operation, maintenance, repair and advanced technical support. We are also producing videos so you can learn at home.
What Makes Our Product Selection and Design Better
We take the time to listen to our customers. We value your opinions on kilns. Your feedback often results in better Paragon designs and new features. Listening to you has resulted in developing 10 new product lines in the last 5 years. With over 4,000 kiln products to choose from, Paragon has the largest selection in the industry. Because we manufacture everything from small table top kilns for first-time buyers to large production kilns for commercial users, we have kilns that are perfectly suited just for you.
The drive for continual design improvement 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 such as the legendary Orton Ceramics for all of our digital controllers. Our kilns are ergonomically designed with you in mind. We know your time and materials are valuable, so we continually improve our kilns to give you consistent and repeatable firings.
We also design custom kilns for special applications. We have two full-time design engineers and full sheet metal manufacturing capability in the factory for fast design and manufacture of custom kilns. We have manufactured over 900 specialized kilns.
