Who we are

Sutcliffe Play is the UK’s first and only employee-owned playground equipment designer and manufacturer. We specialise in creating tailor made, bespoke, outdoor play space solutions to create successful play environments.

Our team is highly skilled in the design and build of quality play equipment and play spaces, and because we all own the company, every single one of us can lay claim to the title of Quality Control Officer.

Everybody you talk to in our business is an owner and a partner, with a vested interest in delivering total quality and meeting our customers’ expectations to ensure our success.

We all own our business, we all care.

Our Ethos

Through creativity, innovation and conviction, Sutcliffe Play contributes to the enjoyment and experience of children through play.

We design to encourage children to be creative, imaginative and to experience measured risk during their play, all of which form part of developing a childs physical and mental wellbeing.

But above all else when designing we focus on play for play’s sake, an essential part of every childhood.

Made in Britain

As a British manufacturer, we are very proud of the fact that all Sutcliffe Play products are made in our purpose built factory in the heart of Yorkshire.

We are also proud to be members of Made in Britain, an organisation that brings together the best of the British manufacturing community.
