Teamvantage and Custom Mold & Design are pleased to announce the addition of a third company to our corporate family. We have purchased a company called Paradigme Engineering, LLC. The sale became official on January 03, 2017.
Paradigme brings a new level of technological expertise and expanded capabilities for the tooling side of our business. We are now even better prepared to provide a variety of solutions to solve your difficult manufacturing challenges. Paradigme is a best-in-class mold design and manufacturing company with 11 employees and a 13,500 square foot facility located in Becker, Minnesota. With this addition, we can provide you with full part design, mold design and mold manufacturing support whether you need a prototype mold, bridge tool, low cavitation / high cavitation tooling solutions, and/or mold maintenance services. We can deliver this support for micro molded parts all the way up to large format molding.
Our three companies are ready and available to provide our unique brand of collaboration, by working directly with our customers, to find the ultimate solution for their manufacturing needs. Whether you require molds for thermoplastic, elastomeric, silicone, MIM, ceramic or rubber materials, our cross functional team of experts can help you find the best technology based solution and assist you in bringing your product on line in the least amount of time.
If you prefer to outsource your molding needs, Teamvantage is a best-in-class molder and contract manufacturer for thermoplastic, elastomers and silicone materials. In addition, Custom Mold & Design is fully positioned to provide you with low, medium and high volume machined components, assemblies, jigs and fixtures through our CMD Express parts division.
Another significant benefit to our organization and our customers is that former Paradigme owner, Jon Palmquist, is joining our corporate technology team to provide collaborative technical support and direction to assist in applying the latest technological innovations in support of our customer’s needs. The new addition of Paradigme makes us a completely integrated one stop shop for your prototype, low and high volume production needs.

Teamvantage Awarded Minnesota PIPELINE Program Dual Training Grant
Teamvantage (as part of NewTeam) is excited to have been selected as one of the grant recipients from the Minnesota PIPELINE program. The Minnesota PIPELINE (Private Investment, Public Education, Labor and Industry Experience) Program is an innovative approach to address current and future workforce needs. The program works with employers to change the conversation from “How do we find workers with the skills we need?” to “How do we GIVE workers the skills we need?”
PIPELINE exists to support employers in creating or enhancing a competency-based dual-training approach where workers receive a combination of related instruction strategically paired with on-the-job training. Dual-training grants through the Minnesota Office of Higher Education provide funding for employers to create new and expand existing dual-training initiatives.
With the grant funding, Teamvantage is planning to give current employees an opportunity to learn new skills and advance their careers within the organization.
