Lappset is one of the world’s leading playground and sports venue equipment manufacturers

For already 50 years, the Rovaniemi-based Lappset Group has encouraged and inspired people all around the world to play and exercise.

Back in 1970, Antero Ikäheimo noticed that there were no playgrounds available for children, which led him to establish the family company that focused on manufacturing playground equipment.

Nowadays Lappset is one of the world’s leading playground and sports venue equipment manufacturers. The head office and production plant of the international Lappset Group

are still located in Rovaniemi. At its production plant in Rovaniemi, Lappset produces its wooden playground and exercise product collections, such as Finno, Flora, Clover, Halo, Classic Sport, Fitness, Senior Sport and Street Workout.

The high-quality, durable products with a long lifecycle consider the needs of users from different age groups. For example, Lappset’s senior parks support active ageing and wellbeing for mind and body. The park and street equipment also provide spaces for socialising. Thanks to their interactive product collections, the company is a forerunner in playground and sports solutions in today’s digital age. Similarly, the themed activity parks provided using the turnkey principle, bring play, activity and togetherness to a completely new dimension, to the very core of meaningful experiences. Most recently, Lappset has entered into cooperation with the popular Moomins. The very first production of the Moomin Play by Lappset product range was the Moominhouse and grounds. One of Lappset’s trump cards is its PlayCare service that takes care of product installations, servicing and reparation work using the turnkey principle. Lappset Creative on the other hand conjures up unique themed activity parks that cater to the requirements of clients in the form of indoor and outdoor concepts.
