Abacus Playgrounds Limited was established in 1994 and the Group has grown to be the UK’s largest installer of safety surfacing for children’s playgrounds.
The Group offers cost effective surfacing solutions to nurseries, schools, sports & recreation grounds and domestic environments. In 2007 the company purchased a Nottinghamshire based company, Playtop Limited and the Abacus Lawrence Group was formed.
The group saw further expansion after the acquisition of a Buckinghamshire based play equipment company in 2011 and the purchase of Nova Sport Limited in 2012 as well as the purchase of a further group company in 2015.
The team at Magee Gammon, headed by director Mark Britland, worked very closely with the group’s directors.
Mark comments “Over a number of years I have formed a close working relationship with the directors and other key personnel at the group, which has enabled me to understand the function of the businesses of the Group and the directors’ goals, we are able to provide the support and expertise of an in-house finance director providing statistical advice as required”.

Magee Gammon’s guidance over the years has been an instrumental part of our continued expansion.
