For a quarter century, Paramount has operated on a foundation of three principles for a sharp edge:

  • Personable Service
  • Competitive Prices
  • Rapid Response

In an industry rife with large, multi-layered mega-companies providing impersonal service, Paramount deliberately designed a flat, agile organization that delivers efficient, attentive service. This personable approach combines with Paramount’s exceptional technical acumen to provide customers with high quality colorants and additives in a timely fashion at competitive prices. Paramount operates a fully equipped lab, which serves as the infrastructure for exacting quality control and solid regulatory support to customers.

The company’s flagship products, Parafast pigments and Parasol dyes, demonstrate the organization’s commitment to excellence.

Paramount is based in the Chicago metropolitan area, with distribution centers across North America and deep relationships with international chemical manufacturers. For more information about working with Paramount Colors to bring the best colors to your business, contact us at
