Lappset Group has taken playground design into new spheres. Lappset introduces a new monumental and architectonical play concept called Cubic at the international FSB Fair held in Cologne, Germany, on 7-11 November 2017. Compliant with the European Safety Standard for Playground Equipment, Cubic becomes a centrepiece and a focal point of any public park.
Lappset’s factory in Tallinn, Estonia, was audited successfully on 22 September 2017 by an independent third party regarding the ISO 9001 Quality Assurance System and the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. The factory passed the audition done by Kiwa Inspecta with excellent results.
The theme park business of Lappset Group Oy is experiencing intense growth in Finland and abroad. Next in line is designing and building already a second activity park for Tykkimaen Vapaa-aikakeskus Oy who is opening a new indoor activity park in the Prisma department store in the Laune district of the city of Lahti. The first Tykkimaki Actionpark was opened in October 2016 in the Kouvola Prisma department store. Lappset Creative has substantially completed and ongoing theme park projects overseas, working in partnership with the international Mattel Group and a number of other big brands.
Responsible for Lappset Group Oy’s theme park business, Lappset Creative has brought the Peter Rabbit Adventure attraction to Flamingo Land Theme Park & Zoo in Yorkshire. The adventure attraction covers an area of around a thousand square metres (~10,764 square feet) and it was manufactured and installed in about three months. The attraction was opened to the public at the end of July. This is the second Peter Rabbit attraction delivered by Lappset to the United Kingdom.
Finland celebrates its centenarian this year by organizing special events throughout the year in Finland and abroad. In Stockholm, a three-day event will be held 24-26 August 2017 at the Kungsträdgården, one of the central parks of the Capital. Lappset are proud of having been chosen one of the distinguished Finnish companies to take part in the event. Together with our Swedish subsidiary, Lappset Sweden, we have constructed a tailored playground for this special occasion to bring joy to children and families.
Lappset Group Oy are delighted to welcome Mr Kimmo Lautanen as Chief Operational Officer (COO) as of the 14th of August 2017 and as a new member of the management group of the company.
Our designers, product specialists and professionals have worked hard to create something that you have been waiting for. And now we are delighted to share our creations at the FSB fair in Cologne, 7-10 November 2017.
Lappset Group has had the ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental management systems already since the late 1990’s. The certificates related to these systems are subject to auditions by an independent third party on a regular basis. Re-auditing of the management systems was carried out in the Rovaniemi and Tallinn factories in June this year with excellent results.
