June 6th marked a special date in Nottingham-based play equipment provider Proludic Ltd’s calendar. On this day in 2002, the UK subsidiary was officially formed to sell Proludic manufactured play and sports equipment into this new market as part of the group’s strategy to expand its representation globally.
Initially, the offices were based in Nottingham’s West Bridgford suburb, and Proludic then consisted of 9 employees. Fast forward 20 years and the company has expanded to what is almost fifty members of staff based in modern offices on the outskirts of the city. This phenomenal growth has so far left a legacy of over 6000 play and sports areas up and down the length and breadth of the country.
Inspired by its early origins as a family-owned business created in France in 1988, the UK subsidiary has harnessed a similar close-knit ethos throughout its culture. As a result, the privately-owned company has cultivated passionate like-minded employees supported by a global organisation that combines to make the Proludic family.
Proludic’s 4 core values of Experience, Innovation, Commitment and Proximity have undoubtedly been the guiding formula underpinning its success to date. These have inspired the company's mission to create engaging play and sports areas that contribute to the development and wellbeing of their users and the communities they serve.
Reflecting on the success of the company, Rob Baker, Proludic’s MD, said “I strongly believe our substantial growth can be put down to the quality of people that we employ, coupled with a strong set of core values that guide the culture and our mission. We are certainly not going to rest on our laurels and we will continue to harmonise the inspiring commitments we make to our customers whilst also making Proludic a fun and professional environment for our staff to thrive.”
Despite this continued success, Proludic is showing no signs of slowing down! As one of the global leaders in the play industry, offering innovative, inclusive, and bespoke designs, the company will continue to leverage its core values to deliver a quality service for its clients.
