Waldsports manufactures bicycle baskets, training wheels, fenders, racks and other bike accessories.
Joad Sportz Supplies now brings the range to Australia. Thanks to contracts with American bicycle manufacturers Schwinn, Huffy, Murray, and Roadmaster, Wald began producing millions of parts annually for bikes of all shapes and sizes. All the while, executives at Wald were piling up the patents for bicycle baskets, training wheels, kickstands, racks, handlebars, fenders, and pedals. If it was a part used on a bicycle, WALD came up with an innovative way to produce it.
Wald became so successful that the leading bicycling publication of the day (American Bicyclist and Motorcyclist) featured our company in a six-page article to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 1955.
Grandpa Ewald and Uncle Herman's gamble paid off. The four balanced seasons and Kentucky's central location to the rest of the country provided a perfect environment for Wald to try out new products and expand its business. However, much like the car industry found out, the global market forces of offshore bicycle and parts manufacturers were about to change the game.
Like many American companies before WALD, at times it has been a struggle to come to terms with the new business landscape. Wald supplemented it's bicycle business by producing products for automotive and appliance manufacturers. As a result, you'd be surprised where Wald's products turn up today.
