Thule's Swedish roots go back to 1942 by Erik Thulin. Thulin, a true lover of the outdoors, put the Thule name on a pike trap that he designed and began selling to the fishermen of Scandinavia. It wasn't long before he added other practical things — such as belt buckles — to his company's portfolio. By the 1960s, the company began to concentrate its business on car-related products, and before long the first roof rack was born and Thule became the world's largest producer of roof boxes. Thule is now known globally for a wide assortment of products with a focus on solving the problem of how to safely and easily use roof racks, roof boxes, and bike and boat carriers to bring your outdoor gear and equipment with you when using a car or truck, regardless of the age, make or model. Making it easier to take your gear with you when you travel, Thule also offers luggage, backpacks, snow chains and more.
