By maintaining our commitment to continuous product development and customer service over the last 35 years, Playco is now New Zealand’s leading supplier of quality playground equipment.

In our association with our international partners Proludic, Playco has access to leading design and innovation technology to better fuel children’s imagination and sense of adventure. If you visit your local council park, school or childcare centre you are probably going to find a Playco playground! All of our playgrounds are built to last and offer safe and exciting play opportunities to children of all ages. All of our equipment is fully compliant to the NZS 5828:20015 safety standards, and all Playco playgrounds are supplied with either a full installation or a comprehensive installation guide, and nation-wide backup service.

Playco equipment challenges and stimulates, while encouraging confidence, agility, and stamina. As New Zealand’s most trusted manufacturer with over 30 years of experience, our products can withstand both the test of time and rigours of play.
Playco is a family-owned New Zealand company that has been operating since 1986. We employ New Zealand mums and dads to design, construct, and install our fantastic playgrounds, and believe there is no-one better qualified to understand exactly what Kiwi kids need for playground equipment than the team at Playco.
