Our company was established over 45 years ago, built on family values at a time when a handshake was the preferred way of doing business. We’ve grown a lot since then, adding corporate sensibilities to our business model and constantly updating and refining our manufacturing processes.
INNOVATION MEETS TRADITION
We know that to deliver the best products and design solutions for our clients, we have to use the latest technologies. It has been our ongoing mission to continually integrate the newest manufacturing methods into our processes, while never losing sight of quality or what traditional manufacturing solutions can still provide.
Our people are the heart of the company. Most of our team members have been here for years. We continually promote from within, because we know that experience gained in working with our clients is priceless and immeasurable. Over time, they have all become experts at understanding and meeting our clients’ needs.
For over four decades, we have manufactured products with the highest level of quality, providing our customers with nothing but the best.
From the invention of the drywall lift in the early ’70s to customized safety solutions for industries around the globe, we are continuously making advancements in manufacturing and design.
Our products have been the industry standard since 1973, and we strive to provide our customers not only with great products, but also with exceptional customer service.

After nearly twenty years of working for Telpro Inc., Trent (in conjunction with his partners) purchased it in 2018 and renamed it Paragon Pro Manufacturing Solutions. He guides all aspects of production.
Elaine was also a member of the company when it was Telpro Inc. Seeing a great opportunity, she joined Trent in purchasing the company.
Trevor has worked for the company for many years. When his brother asked if he would join the endeavor, he decided to become an ownership partner of Paragon Pro too, ensuring that even though new ownership was in place the family atmosphere would remain.
In 2012, Tony came to Telpro and started working production on the Panellift® brand line. This helped to build his knowledge base of the Telpro products. It soon became apparent that he was much better suited to work directly with our clients, and he’s been an invaluable sales team member.
Killian began working for Telpro Inc. in 2015. With experience in various departments throughout the company, he now works with our engineering team to help customers develop and implement custom solutions, as well as managing aspects of our contract manufacturing.
Seth has been with the company for over 17 years. He’s the technical guru when it comes to the Panellift® line.
Director of Engineering
In 1979, Larry began working with his father, Roland Young, the founder of Telpro Inc., to design and produce new products. At Paragon Pro, Larry is a valued member of our engineering team.
