Park Tool has come quite the distance since creating their first bicycle stand from parts of a table and an old 1937 Ford back in late 70’s. Today, Park Tool is the leading and largest bicycle tool manufacturer in the world with over 400 cycling tools and accessories available on the market.
In 1963, Howard Hawkins and Art Engstrom founded Park Tool. Beginning with producing bike stands, the business quickly introduced many additional products such as wheel truing stands and consumer tools to its product line. Due to the massive success from the original bike stand, in 1976, Park Tool applied and received a patent for their clamping device, which is incorporated in all bikes stands.
Since the recruitment of current CEO and son of Howard, Eric Hawkins, Park Tool has committed to “build the best bicycle tools in the world”. Whilst this is an optimistic goal, Park Tool is constantly producing quality and innovative tools to the market.
With headquarters in Minnesota, the United States, Park Tool design, manufacture, market and distribute their cycling tools and accessories in-house. These days, bicycle technology and products are changing so rapidly, Park Tool are creating 15 – 20 new products per year.
Park Tool can be easily identified by the iconic blue colour incorporated into the design of each tool, which is a registered trademark of the Park Tool Co.
