Douglas Battersby


If we were looking for the perfect playground designer, then Doug would be it. 40 years young with 25 years of common-sense problem solving, Doug’s our guru when it comes to the design and manufacturing of playground magic.

His wand looks rather like a computer mouse, but that’s about all we can decipher of his magic formula. The rest he keeps in his spell book of CAD drawings. There’s plenty of spells there though, gathered from years of designing and manufacturing stuff in the engineering, automotive and construction industries.  

We doubt Doug will ever run out of magic potions. He’s got too many things running around inside his head that are calling out to be manufactured and marketed and for now, we’re lucky to be on the receiving end of all his great ideas!
