Our family believes in family — the values and virtues. This notion seeped into our company culture over the years, and now our customers confidently declare it. We’ve always provided the most sincere service possible. If we seem familiar to you, it’s because we are. We are your hard-working down-to-earth family with humble roots, constantly pushing through to a bright, innovative future. Not only is Paramount a second-generation family-run organization, we treat each other as family in the office, and in the field — with loyalty, honesty, and accountability.
My father, Paramount’s co-founder Jack Gample, started our business over forty years ago, selling paint containers from the back of his pickup in Paramount, California. Today, this entrepreneurial spirit is instilled in everything we do. It’s a main reason for our steady growth. We have programs in place like RICE, which reminds us to always be different and better by encouraging and empowering our work family to be pillars of Respect, Integrity, Communication, and Excellence.
These are the kind of things that reflect our truth, things that make our brand. A culture like this welcomes our customers as part of the family, where, they too, share the same elements of success. We believe providing everyone with an incomparable customer experience is the responsibility of more than just one department — it takes a village. By focusing on Accuracy, Communication and Timeliness, our ACT program consistently achieves exemplary customer service.
A top priority at Paramount is the commitment to developing our work family. It is critical to our success and future growth as an organization to help build and refine the skills everyone needs to make the Paramount experience “package perfect.”
We value your partnership and will continue to invest in our company to provide you with a truly unique experience.
We are a global family with a passion for building lasting partnerships through inventive solutions and personal service.
Paramount was founded in 1976 as an entrepreneurial venture with a vision of creating exceptional service to the industrrial container market. For over 40 years that same philosophy of providing exceptional customer service continues to drive our company every day.
