Steve Danby

Managing Director


As a family run firm my mum, dad and I have been blessed with the opportunity to employ and work with an amazing group of people.  It's with thanks to those people that Playscheme is what it is today.

Being Managing Director, my role is to oversee all departments of Playscheme and ensure that the company runs smoothly and progressively. 

We are lucky enough to be able to design, build and install play equipment for children and adults alike. Since starting Playscheme we've built everything from a balance beam right through to 9m Towers and fire breathing Viking boats.

I started Playscheme with my son 25 years ago, working from my shed at home.  Designs were drawn by hand and most of the equipment was handmade. Over the years we have grown and expanded into the company we are today. My role has changed from doing practically everything to specialising in sales and the running of the company. I’ve recently handed over the role of Managing Director to Steve.
The things I enjoy most about my job are my customers and the creative element from making and designing to inspiring imaginations. As a father I have found it a privilege to work with my son, which most people don’t get to experience. I’m proud of our family firm and family values.
