Fort Worth, TX – December 1, 2021 – Paragon Energy Solutions, LLC, known for tackling the nuclear industry’s most difficult challenges, is pleased to announce that the company has been acquired by Windjammer Capital Investors and the Paragon management team.
Paragon works closely with customers to develop innovative solutions within the nuclear industry and is committed to the role nuclear will play in a zero-carbon energy future. The company’s extensive industry certifications, broad engineering and operational capabilities, and 30 years of experience operating within a complex regulatory environment have positioned Paragon as a key partner with nuclear utility customers and providers of the next generation of advanced reactors.
Paragon previously had been an Argosy Capital portfolio company.
Paragon’s CEO Doug VanTassell said, “We are thrilled to partner with Windjammer, as this will allow us to further develop and expand our product and service offerings to directly benefit our current and future customers. Having a strong capital partner with Argosy Capital since 2017 allowed Paragon and the management team to acquire ATC Nuclear in 2017, Nuclear Logistics in 2020, as well as invest in the people and equipment to grow at a rapid rate.”
“Paragon is focused on finding innovative solutions for the challenges faced by the nuclear industry, which include bridging the supply gap faced by plants, and designing and engineering new systems that address the unique needs of our customers. And with Windjammer backing us, we will continue to invest to grow organically and through acquisitions,” VanTassell concluded.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
