New Playground Equipment at GlaxoSmithKline

GlaxoSmithKline in Ulverston added a fantastic new Matterhorn Plus Mountain Tower to their play area, upgrading their existing Playdale equipment which had been there for over 15 years.

They wanted to update the play area with something more modern and Playdale’s new Matterhorn Plus was the perfect fit. They also upgraded the swings and added some fast-paced Movers equipment to create an exciting playground for children to enjoy.

The end result is fantastic and it is has breathed new life into the play area that is a popular destination for families in the area.

Michael Wagstaff, Project Manager at GlaxoSmithKline, said: “We’re really happy with the project, it looks really good. It’s manufactured to a high standard and the children really enjoy playing on it.”
