KOMPAN is one of the world's leading specialists in play solutions for all age groups. KOMPAN is engaged in the development, production, marketing, and sale of playground products for all age groups.

History
KOMPAN was founded by the artist Tom Lindhardt Wils in 1970 when he discovered that children turned his colourful pieces of art into play equipment.

Leading the world in playground solution for all ages
KOMPAN is an international playground specialist with sales organisations and representative offices all over the world. Approx. 90 % of the company's turnover is generated outside Denmark through Centres of Excellences and representative offices located in Europe, North America, Asia/Pacific and The Middle East. Please see our representations list for more information about the different locations worldwide.

The solutions we develop, produce, market and sell are designed from the ground to improve childhood health and learning. And all our products offer compelling design, high play value, uncompromising safety, unique innovation and long-lasting quality.

With KOMPAN, there's a philosophy behind the playground
As the world's No. 1 producer of quality playground equipment, we are held in high regard by our customers. These public authorities, schools, nurseries and other organisations trust us not just to produce fun and exciting playgrounds, but to understand what's really behind a great playground. So much more than just physical constructions, KOMPAN playgrounds are designed to reach a higher goal: promoting child development through play.

Great playgrounds are built on knowledge
One reason why we're the global leader in our field is the KOMPAN Play Institute. KOMPAN Play Institute is a knowledge centre which is comprised of an international network of play and child specialist who research and monitor how societal trends influence children's development and opportunities to play. Their findings are an integral part of the product development concentrating on play values of the products. This unique knowledge centre is a valuable repository of insight into children's play, health and learning. It's the perfect complement to our decades of hands-on experience making playgrounds that promote child development. Find further information at the KOMPAN Play Institute.
