In early 1964, Douglas Harsen began machining parts on a Logan lathe in his garage. After several months of this part-time enterprise, Doug moved the fledgling business into 1,000 square feet on Paramount Street in Irwindale, California, and Paramount Machine Company was born.

By 1968, Paramount Machine had doubled in size to 2,000 square feet and four employees. The next decade saw steady growth as the company acquired a reputation for outstanding quality and customer service. By 1978, Paramount occupied 6,000 square feet and, by 1985, had grown into its own 10,000-square-foot building in San Dimas, California, with twenty-one employees. Paramount Machine had also entered the computer age with vertical and horizontal CNC mills and four-axis turning capabilities.

In 1991, Doug Harsen retired and sold the business to his son, Greg. Greg Harsen was raised in the machining business and worked his way up from sweeping the floor to CNC programming, and running the shop with Kenny and several other long-term Paramount employees. Under Greg’s leadership, and with the talent and dedication of the people at Paramount, the company entered a new era of growth and success. By 1996, Paramount Machine had moved into a new 12,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Rancho Cucamonga, California, with twenty-four people and $2.5 million in annual sales.

Today, Paramount Machine is a recognized leader in precision machining for a wide range of industries including aerospace, electronics, commercial and defense industries. With more than forty people operating two shifts and over $4 million in annual sales, Paramount Machine combines fifty years of knowledge and experience with an extraordinary commitment to quality and customer service to provide you with the best value in the business for your precision machining requirements.
