We have developed new products by utilising what already exists and combining these with newer products and technologies to create a solution.
Our solutions are manufactured either to our stringent designs or to agreed customer specifications. We offer UK manufacturing for quick turnaround or overseas manufacturing to provide that competitive edge. We ensure that the quality control is of the highest standard and employ manufacturers who understand the importance of our customers' business. All manufacturing is underpinned by ISO 9001 Quality Management.
In addition to tailor made cabling solutions, we also provide ‘off the shelf’ cable and hardware solutions at competitive prices.
In business, every penny counts. However we strongly believe that one should give back to the community when one can. As such we make regular charitable donations.
This is part of our company ethos and core to our existence. Although it is our choice to give away some of our profits, ultimately it is our customers’ support and money that empowers us to do this.
As directors of Paragon Networks, we extend a heartfelt thank you to all our customers for your continual support. Without this we would not be able to give to such worthy causes.
Thomas & Alan
Below are some of the charities that we have contributed to date:
Daisy’s Dream is a Berkshire charity supporting children, and their families, who are facing, or have experienced, the death of a loved one. The service is delivered by professionally qualified Family Workers and is provided completely free of charge. They receive absolutely no statutory funding and as such rely on donations from local businesses and communities to raise the £300,000 it costs to run the service each year.
Their work consists of three main elements: The 1:1 intensive support with children, which takes place either at home or in school; Group work sessions and events which work with both the children and their families; and training for other professionals who are working with children facing or following bereavement. Their training is the only service that they do not provide free of charge. In 2012/13 their small team of Family Workers supported 560 children across the county.

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.
MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. However, not all symptoms necessarily happen to everyone and it is unlikely they will all develop at the same time, or in any specific order.
Although there is currently no cure for MND, symptoms can be managed to help sufferers’ achieve the best possible quality of life.
