Overseas success for business

A CHRISTCHURCH company is celebrating reaching a major business milestone.

Fenland Leisure Products received its first order from Italy and it should have arrived in Rome last week.

Online Playgrounds was set up as an e-commerce division of Fenland Leisure three years ago and specialises in selling commercial playground spares and components.

Andrew Sparrow, Managing Director, said: “I am incredibly pleased that Online Playgrounds is now starting to reach overseas. It is always challenging starting something new, especially in the current trading climate; however, there are orders out there even if they come all the way from Italy.

“We will be 20 years old in 2012 and to see one of our arms begin to show signs of development overseas is really quite an achievement.”
