What is the meaning of Stand 21?


We are asked this question all the time, and the meaning is quite simple.  Yves Morizot who in 1970 founded Stand 21, gave his company this name because of the industry he would revolutionize and geographical location where he put down roots.  "Stand" is translated into French as "Pit", "Pit Box" or more closely "Pit Stall".  The country of France is broken into numbered regions or sections called "Departements".  The Departement where Stand 21 was established and still headquartered today is the 21st, Côte-d'Or, and specifically in the Burgundy Capital, Dijon, France.  As a result, we have "Stand 21".


Why should I choose Stand 21?


Since 1970, thousands of the biggest names and teams in racing have chosen to partner with us for their technical and safety products.  Thousands more gentlemen/women and amateur drivers have also chosen to believe and trust their lives with our products.  Simply put, while many companies in the industry focus on marketing and apparel, we choose to invest profits into research and development and bringing continuous improvements to the safety industry.  Although racing safety has greatly decreased the risk of serious injury or fatality, there are still extreme risks in any form of motorsport. Our mission to eliminate this is still as crucial today as it was when Stand 21 was founded in 1970.  If you need more convincing, please see our company timeline HERE or call (714)375-0040 to speak with a Stand 21 safety specialist.

Stand 21 North America is a factory direct importer and franchise.  We are the only company in the United States and Mexico who has the full right to sell ALL Stand 21 products. However, Stand 21 North America has reserved the right for select distributors to sell their products if the fit is found.  Stand 21 is extremely unique for its custom sizing and design customization and as such, it is not a product that is easy to carry and sell like some of our competitors.  If you feel you are a good fit to carry, promote and sell Stand 21 products in North America, please email and we will be happy to discuss your potential.
