Paramount Jamaica started with the vision of creating a company committed to its people, its customers and to its country. C.E.O Hugh Graham, with the support of Directors Daryl Fong Kong and Richard Rogers, founded Paramount in 1991. Paramount has been committed to delivering the best in the raw chemicals industry ever since.

Today, we are a leading manufacturer and distributor of chemical raw materials to Jamaica’s market leaders— the food & beverage industry, construction, hospitality, the bauxite and mining industries among many others. Our Stamina Trucking and Transportation Haulage services maintain the efficiency of our distribution network, ensuring our customers get their products on time.

At Paramount, we are propelled by our core values of honesty, integrity, teamwork and accountability. We know that people are what matter. By remaining steadfast in these values, we are able to push the envelope and accelerate value and growth for our own company, and other Jamaican industries by extension.

We foster exclusive partnerships with best–in-class producers such as SIKA Construction Products and Allegheny Petroleum Lubricants and Oils. This allows us to broaden the range and improve the quality of products available on the market.

In 2017, we acquired two bleach manufacturing plants and now provide contract manufacturing services and chlorine repackaging services.
We were listed on the Jamaica Junior Stock Exchange in 2012 and are proud of the fact that only three years later we were awarded two prizes: Best Practices Award 2015 for Corporate Disclosure and Investor Relations in the Junior Market category, and the Best Practices Award 2015 for Best Performing Company in the Junior Market category.

At Paramount, we know that success is a team effort. We believe that our investment in our employees’ growth and development will allow us to remain a leader in Jamaica’s chemical industry.

At Paramount, we emphasize innovation. This is a quality that will allow us to remain at the forefront of the chemicals industry. We look forward to improving and growing as we continue to work together to serve our customers.
