Paragon Rapid Technologies achieves ISO 9001 certification

As one of the UK’s leading rapid prototyping companies, Darlington-based Paragon Rapid Technologies has underlined its company-wide commitment to delivering superior parts for its customers by achieving ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for its Quality Management System.

The successful review carried out by third-party auditor QMS International Ltd. certifies that Paragon is capable of meeting or exceeding the expectations of its customers through the provision of rapid prototyping, model making and low volume production components and assemblies for a wide range of industries.

ISO 9001: 2015 is an internationally recognised standard with a focus on supplying products and services of the highest quality.

Paragon prides itself on its technical expertise and strong reputation for delivering superior customer service and achieving the accreditation is testament to this.

Paragon’s Quality manager David Hamm, who facilitated the certification process, said: “Gaining this certification represents the next phase of Paragon’s commercial strategy, as we strive to be the product development partner of choice. We’ll continue to roll out business improvement policies like this to support our ambitious growth plans and ensure Paragon remains at the forefront of the prototyping industry.”

Paragon is committed to investing in new technology and innovations that will further improve our capabilities. This achievement follows the recent introduction of a portable CMM machine, which allows Paragon to maintain its product quality through digital verification.

Using the state of the art FaroArm, Paragon can carry out 3D part inspections and reverse engineer products where CAD data is insufficient.
