Park Tool Company

Park Tool Company

Park Tool Companhy is a manufacturer and marketer of Bicycle tools and equipment for both professional and home bicycle mechanics. They manufacture over 300 products.

In 1963, Howard Hawkins and Art Engstrom were the owners of three bicycle shops in the Twin Cities area when they began creating their own tools. The first tool that was created was a stand that held a bike off the ground allowing convenient access to any part of the bike. Other area bike shops liked the stands and requested a production model. By the early 1980s, Hawkins andEngstrom had sold their bicycle shops to focus their efforts on the tool business.

Park tools typically incorporate blue into their design. The color blue is a registered trademark and trade dress of the company.
