The sled that started it all
Paricon has had a long and colorful history in the sled-making business. Henry F Morton started producing hand-crafted sleds in his kitchen in 1861. The art evolved into a business. He founded Paris Manufacturing in South Paris, ME. From then through today- and into the future- the sled making progresses. Currently, Hank Morton and his sons, Ted and Tom, are continuing the family tradition in the sled business with Paricon under the iconic Flexible Flyer brand. 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, foam sliders, inflatable tubes, wooden toboggans, snowboards 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. Paricon's success and excellence in customer service earned them the Maine Gannett Family-owned Business of the Year Award!
