We are pleased to welcome Paragon Inks to the Aldus group. Paragon was founded in Scotland in 1985 with 3 staff. Today it is based in Livingston and has grown to 46 staff.
Paragon supplies UV inks and varnishes in both local and export markets, with total sales of GBP10 million. With the acquisition of Paragon, more than 50% of Aldus’ group sales is now in Europe.
Frank Floriano, Aldus CEO said “We acquired Paragon’s Australian distributor in 2017 and have been extremely impressed with the quality of the Paragon product. Upon getting to know the company better, we have continued to be impressed by the quality of the products, customer relationships and the Paragon team. We feel very confident that Paragon will continue to grow and prosper as part of the Aldus Group.”
Shaun Bennett, Paragon’s Managing Director said “We are very excited to join the Aldus group. We expect that the financial support and global reach of Aldus means Paragon’s future growth can be assured in terms of new products and customers. Importantly,
Paragon’s team will remain unchanged ensuring we can continue to provide the highest level of service to our customers.”This acquisition follows Aldus’ successful acquisition of API Foilmakers in March of 2020, coincidently also based in Livingston, Scotland. Since this acquisition, Aldus has continued to invest in API and has seen strong monthly growth as API Foilmakers has reestablished its leading market position in Europe.
Aldus is a leading provider of packaging and labelling solutions, with manufacturing and distribution operations carried on in 15 sites across Europe, the US, Australia and New Zealand. Find out more:
