With the retirement of Parks Manufacturing founders Pam and Roger Parks, sons Steven and Richard will take up the torch and continue running operations in Seminole, Okla. This wasn't the only big change—this builder of Blue Wave Boats and Silver Wave Pontoons also recently partnered with Horizon Holdings LLC.
“We are very excited to see our parents rewarded for all their hard work and success over the years,” stated Steven Parks. “We couldn’t have hoped for better partners than Phil and Jim [of Horizon Holdings] to continue forward with the legacy of high quality and great designs for which we have always been known. We have huge plans and a great team and now it’s time to get to work and make things happen.”
Phil Estes, managing member of Horizon, added, “Both Blue Wave and Silver Wave boat brands have loyal and passionate consumer followings, and we look forward to Parks Manufacturing continuing to be a customer-focused, dealer-friendly and innovative company. Given our long history in the boat business, focus on working with outstanding leaders and our special connection to the state of Oklahoma, it is a real honor to have this chance to work with this family.”
