Paragon Rapid Technologies, one of the UK’s leading prototyping and low volume manufacturing companies, is delighted to welcome Jim Ashby as its new Applications Development Manager for the South.
Jim Ashby joined the company on 20th March 2023. He will focus on strengthening ties with existing customers based in the South of England, as well as building new relationships with OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers in the region. He will be promoting all technologies in the Paragon portfolio, from 3D printing to CNC machining.
Jim is a Rolls-Royce trained Fuel systems engineer with 10 years’ experience in Additive Manufacturing (AM), supporting the Aerospace, Medical, Automotive, Optics, Military, Robotics, and Consumer goods markets UK wide. He has a particularly keen interest in new AM developments in machinery, processes, and materials.
Jim’s consultative style has given him an undeniably excellent track record in helping customers to gain a deeper understanding of the commercial and technical benefits of AM and CNC subcontract machining in their businesses – from product development through to serial manufacturing. In his spare time, Jim is a keen walker with a love of the outdoors; and an eager acoustic guitarist (and guitar collector).
