Paramount was started in 1991 as a manufacturers’ representative and commission agent and as we grew, warehousing and distribution were added during the 1990s. By the late 2000s, there was further growth into the construction sector through alliance with the SIKA group. Also in late 2000s, with the departure of many multinationals from Jamaica, Paramount was able to expand further through the acquisition of a manufacturing facility.
With expansion into this area of the business, Paramount contributes to further to nation-building in a number of ways :
- through growth in the number of persons employed
- through participation in the lives of the communities in which we operate
- through offering our contract manufacturing capabilities to support local manufacturers
