In Danish, Kompan (pronounced "kumpan") means freidn or companion.
In 1970, the founder of KOMPAN (Tom Lindhardt Wils) witnessed an event that made him change the world of children's play forever - one of his big bright sculptures was placed in a new housing estate and it inspired children to play on his sculpture, although it was intended to be art for adults to view. From that time onwards, Tom spent his life devoted to developing inspiring, fun playgrounds and exercise solutions for children.
Today, KOMPAN provide a variety of outdoor playgrounds and structures for children to learn and play on. Their products facilitate happier and healthier children by keeping them physically active, enabling them to learn and play together in a safe social setting. Their products include:
Balancing & Movement (see saws, bridges, bars, balance beams)
Cableways (flying foxes and swing cables)
Climbing Structures (nets, arcs and cubby playhouses)
Slides (stainless steel, embankment slide, plastic slide)
Swings (nest swings, seat swings and children swings)
Spinners (Carousels, spinner bowls)
The obvious synergies between Megatoy and Kompan, led to a successful and lucrative sale - with a P/E ratio of 7 x EBITDA.
