School playground equipment makers

Playforce offers a wide range of creative play equipment from ‘wobble walkways’, timber trails and climbing walls to outdoor classrooms and shelters. Based in Holt, Wiltshire, the business was founded in 1998 by Edward and Rachael Webb with a £5,000 Princes Trust Loan. All equipment is designed to inspire children to have fun and stimulate their imagination.

Playforce was recognised as a brand at the forefront of innovation in a sector that’s enjoyed renewed focus in recent years. We invested as the playforce team wanted to build on this success to create further growth.
