    About Paricon
    Paricon has had a long and colorful history in the sled-making business, starting in 1861 with the founding of a family
    business, Paris Manufacturing, in South Paris, Maine, by the great grandfather of current CEO, Hank Morton. From then
    through today, and into the future, the story unfolds.

    It all started, in 1861, when Henry Morton married Lucilla Forbes and the young couple started making sleds in their
    home. Henry constructed the sleds by hand and his wife decorated them. Their son, Will, an accomplished artist,
    distinguished himself as a sled painter, specializing in water scenes and scrolls. Hand-decorated sleds today are much
    sought after by collectors, but the originals were probably meant to ensure that each sled would be a child's prized
    possession.

    During the early 1900s, when each sled was made by hand, the company employed close to 300 workers. It continued in
    operation as a family business, still employing 200 workers, until the family gave up ownership in 1970s and sold to
    Gladding Corporation. In 1978, Hank Morton, great-grandson of the founder, headed a group of investors that purchased
    the company back from Gladding.

    Today, Hank and his sons, Ted and Tom, are continuing the family tradition in the sled business with Paricon. The sled
    line has evolved to include a wide assortment of products for winter use sleds, including steel runner and plastic
    models at various price points; snowboards; foam sliders; inflatable tubes; wooden toboggans and snow toys. Paricon
    serves customers throughout the U.S. from its distribution center in South Paris with high-quality products and on-time
    delivery.
