The Exponential Technology Group (XTG), a member of the TTI Family of Specialists, announced the acquisition of Paragon Innovations, a privately held engineering design services firm headquarter in Richardson, Texas.

The company will continue to operate as Paragon Innovations and company founder Michael Wilkinson will remain in charge of the business as vice president and general manager reporting to XTG President, Michael Knight. “After more than three-decades of growth, we join the Exponential Technology Group at TTI to complement their services and serve a broader clientele,” said Mike Wilkinson. “We look forward to becoming part of the XTG team and the TTI Family of Specialists.”

Commenting on the announcement, Knight said, “The Paragon team expands the strength and capabilities of the design services offering within the Exponential Technology Group. The firm has a remarkable reputation and customer base that has been crafted over the course of thirty years of helping OEMs large and small bring innovative new products to market. Paragon’s involvement runs from concepting through full product design, proof of concept, testing and certification, and readiness for manufacturing.”

Knight further observed, “Paragon’s services uniquely complement those of Connected Development, the Raleigh, NC-IoT design services firm we acquired in January of 2020. Together the two companies offer the talents of over 50 electronic hardware, software and mechanical engineers who are experts in the full range of wireless and RF protocols, sensor connectivity, cellular certification, component selection and design for manufacturing.”
