Park Tool - From DIY Repair Stand to the World's Leading Tool Manufacturer
It must have been a typical cold day in the early sixties when Howard Hawkins - a hard-working bicycle dealer from Saint Paul (Minnesota) - got tired of working on bicycles while bent over. So he took two table legs, a shell and an axle from a '37 Ford and built himself a repair stand. The useful piece quickly attracted great attention. As early as 1963, the repair stand went into series production. The Park Tool Company was born and the history of success continued. To this day, the "blue brand" has retained its unique hands-on mentality and is part of the standard equipment in many bicycle service shops.
