Paragon Rapid Technologies receives the BSI Assurance Mark

Paragon Rapid Technologies, the North-Eastern product development support company, has been working hard to raise its levels of service and quality across its three business streams and now has a BSI Kitemark to prove its achievements.

The BSI Kitemark represents quality in performance, management, and service, and denotes that all
services offered by a company can be trusted. Companies earning the BSI Kitemark are
independently audited on a regular basis and are required to deliver services to the BSI’s exacting
quality standards consistently.

Based at Teesside International Airport, the Paragon Rapid Technologies group of companies
provides world-class support throughout the product development cycle, from concept to

Through its three strategic business units, Paragon AM Technologies, Paragon CNC
Technologies and Paragon Rapid Technologies, the company offers technical expertise, process
knowledge and supply chain management to customers in the aerospace, defence, automotive and
transport, marine, medical, consumer, design, industrial, architectural, entertainment and energy, oil
and gas industries.

To be assessed for the BSI Kitemark, companies must hold ISO 9001, the international standard for a
quality management system. Paragon, which has held the ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for four years,
was audited by BSI in July this year.

David Hamm, Paragon’s Quality Manager, comments, “It’s with great pleasure that we can announce
we have been assessed and certified to ISO 9001:2015 with BSI. We see it as a positive move to
increase the levels of service offered to our customers. It will also allow us to manufacture products
for the automotive sector and other industries requiring a governing body recognised by the IAF, and
those who are also UKAS approved.”
