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.

Don't buy unless kids under 50lbs are going to use it, any more than that it will break.Published 1 day ago by Brittany Smith
2 of the three sleds cracked within first 3 runs down the hillPublished 1 day ago by David Harriton
These sleds are great, and fast, if the rider weighs less than 60 pounds. Otherwise, they crack in the cold with some weight in them. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Larky'sMomma
These sleds lasted us a number of years before breaking - we ordered them December 2010. We do not get a lot of snow here but they have been used every year. Read morePublished 6 days ago by D. R.

Very disappointing! 2 of 3 cracked within 30 minutes of light use by an 8-yr old (<60 lbs). These are low quality items, don't waste your money.Published 7 days ago by Steve C
