Built to last
From two employees in 1970 to over 400 in 2019, the growth and expansion of Paragon is a testament to its excellence.
From a small machine shop with two employees located in downtown Sapulpa, Oklahoma, Paragon Industries has grown into a multi-faceted corporation at its present, expansive site.
In 1970, with the oil industry still a major player in Creek County, Jack Wachob purchased Sapulpa Machine & Tool as a service shop where drilling contractors could rent "fishing tools", have a machinist repair a part, or even call a portable welder out to a location 24 hours a day.
The manufacturing element of our business began in 1981, when the first coil of steel rolled through the line. Since then, many downstream operations have been added to facilitate the full product lines manufactured today, as well as the construction of a large OD pipe mill. This gave Paragon the capacity to produce steel tubular goods from 4 1/2" to 16" OD.
Today, Paragon still serves the oil industry, but our customer base has expanded from Oklahoma to New York, from Texas to Montana, from Canada to South America.
One of only 12 companies of its kind, Paragon has evolved into a diverse product line, which includes mechanical, sprinkler, line, OCTG and construction.
