Our History

 From humble beginnings in 1952 to the state-of-the-art facility and dealership, 100% dedicated to the funeral service industry.

June 9, 1952

Parks Superior Sales started off very small with a desire to make their business a success. In the beginning, Wilbur Parks, the founder was a one man band handling sales & service. A few years later, Bob Parks came into the business to help his father get the business on its feet. They were a Father & Son team on the road every day, traveling to Funeral homes up and down the East Coast, building relationships and selling & servicing their vehicles, one customer at a time.
