About Just Outdoor Toys
Just Outdoor Toys (JOT) opened in June 2003 with me (Alan) working from a friends dining room with a second hand laptop and a small product display in a field. The business grew much faster than expected and fortunately Jane arrived to help sort out the chaos!
Now we are one of the largest specialists in the country, offering everything from components to complete play systems to both the commercial and domestic markets. We reinvested everything for the first five years which was painful at times but it means we now own everything outright – our warehouse, office, vehicles etc – which prepares us for the next stage of our expansion.
With this growth comes increased responsibility so, at the risk of sounding like a ‘tree hugger’, I wanted to use this section to highlight what JOT now does to try and lessen our impact on the environment:-
- Reuse all supplier cardboard, packaging & pallets
- Reuse shredded timber for our display centre surface
- Recycle all paper, glass, tin & plastic generated in our office & warehouse
- Use Tanalith E preservative
- Use FSC or PEFC certified timber
- Source climbing frames manufactured in the UK
- Use recycled paper for all our stationary
- Use low energy light bulbs in our office & warehouse
- Use a green energy electricity supplier for our warehouse
- Harvest rainwater from our warehouse roof to clean our vehicles
- Planted a native hedgerow around our warehouse (850 plants)
- Planted a mixed hedgerow around our former Essex Display Centre (200 plants)
I just wanted to say thank you so much for such brilliant customer service. The trampoline is up and looks great – the kids are loving it. Thank you (and your team) for great advice and to Brett for putting it up so quickly and efficiently.
We are delighted with the knowledgable service provided by Just Outdoor Toys. We customised the Ventura Midi Tower to include a larger rock wall and changed the position of the cargo net and fireman’s pole to suit our garden. We are really pleased with the result!
Just a quick note to say thank you very much. We are delighted with the new climbing frame and our daughter even more so! Kelvin and his crew did a great job and were very professional and friendly
We are thrilled with this product, excellent quality and a perfect design for our granddaughter to play in. We were very impressed with the personal customer service we received and the price match promise. A company that obviously believes in providing excellent customer service. We will certainly be using them again
I am writing to let you know that our brand-new playground has been tested and approved by many happy little ‘climbers’. Thank you for great service
Having searched the internet extensively, the urgency your Company and Staff have shown was very much appreciated. We did note the extensive help given by your Sales Department. The finished article far exceeds the new Nursery’s expectations. If we endeavor to participate in enhancing our existing Nursery’s outside, play area’s I will be in-touch again. Again, I would like to thank you for your dedication in making sure your customers are satisfied
