Triumph Play Systems was founded in Marshalls Creek, Pennsylvania in 2003 by Michael and Jaclyn Wooding. The idea was simple, Jaclyn was in charge of working directly with each customer, designing each custom unit. Michael would fulfill the orders, building, delivering and setting up every unit from their 1600 square-foot manufacturing facility. The first Triumph Catalog, pressed in 2003, featured two tower styles, consisting of six standard swing set configurations.
As the business grew so did their family. In the Fall of 2003 their second daughter was born and in 2005 their son. The kids would play on the swing set displays all summer long and they got very tan! The kids became the swing set testers, the catalog models, the envelope stuffers and stampers, and they were never very far from their parents - Michael and Jaclyn’s main reason for starting the company. You might have seen pictures of their kids on this web site or in their catalogs over the years.
In the fall of 2012 Triumph Play Systems and the Wooding family moved to Ashburnham, Massachusetts. This allowed the business to be closer to both its growing New England customer base and the northern white cedar sourced from northern Vermont and Maine. The property consisted of two brownstone mill buildings, formerly of the Boston Chair Company, complete with a creek running through it, as well as a newer steel manufacturing space and plenty space to grow.
A lot has changed since the first couple of years. Those little swing set testers and envelope stuffers are all grown up and spend their summers as integral team members - prepping, packing and even installing custom systems throughout New England. But we still believe a beautiful, long-lasting play set is a huge purchase. So Jaclyn’s design team will work with every customer to make sure that your swing set is absolutely perfect.
Today Triumph Play System's catalog features ten fort styles, over 60 standard swing set configurations, and all wooden components are still milled and processed in our 30,000+ square foot facility in Ashburnham, Massachusetts. We ship units throughout the United States and the world. At Triumph we remain focused on delivering the most premium custom white cedar swing sets to the world's finest backyards.
