The BACnet community is proud to announce that Paragon Controls Inc. has become the latest company to join BACnet International as a Silver member. Paragon, established in 1984, is an industry leader in delivering building performance by designing and manufacturing airflow and pressure measurement systems and solutions. Headquartered in Santa Rosa, CA, Paragon works to make buildings smarter, more efficient, safer, and healthier for occupants through the use of their innovative products.
“Paragon understands that our customers require superior quality products and service,” stated Michelle Foszcz, president of Paragon. “To that end, we undertook rigorous third-party BACnet testing to earn the right to use the BTL Mark, which provides our customers with assurance that our products have passed a global standard designed to validate that BACnet features are correctly implemented eliminating the time, money, and energy spent troubleshooting network communication errors after installation.”
