Park Tool Hosts Tours For 250
During the recent Park Tool Tech Summit in Minneapolis, we bussed about 250 people to our headquarters in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota for a factory tour. We broke into groups of 25 and had staff members lead the 30-minute tours.
Members of our factory staff demonstrated some of the processes used to make the world’s number one brand of bicycle tools.
The feedback from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive as bike mechanics from all over the country got to see first hand how the Park Tool factory operates.
Nick Legan of Velo News capped off the evening with a presentation on the role of the professional mechanic in today’s cycling culture. There was a snowstorm, a factory tour and there was pizza and beer. It was a great night.
