Celebrating 100 years of success!

We are proud to be celebrating our centennial… 100 years of success as Canada’s playground manufacturer!

Blue Imp’s roots go back to 1917 when founder Simon F. Scott set up a small blacksmith shop in Medicine Hat. What began as a humble enterprise has steadily grown into Canada’s longest-standing playground and park equipment manufacturer. We are proud to be family-owned and operated and proud to be made in Canada as we continue to design and fabricate a vast array of products at our facility in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Our high-quality products are infused with family pride and backed by the strongest warranty in the industry. Our nation-wide team of experienced playground consultants provide complete turn-key solutions for schools, parks, municipalities and more. Recognizing that every project entails unique challenges, we work hand in hand with our customers from concept through to completion.

 A Message from Blue Imp’s President

Let the party begin! 2017 is a year celebration for Blue Imp as we mark our centennial! Knowing this is a landmark very few companies reach fills me with deep pride.

Together with my son, Stuart, I would like to thank the many people who continue to be a part of our success: our customers, suppliers, distributors, sales reps and of course our employees, some of whom have been with the company for 30 years. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to my grandfather, Simon F. Scott, who set the Blue Imp story in motion when he established his blacksmith shop in 1917. An inventor and entrepreneur, he not only built some of the machinery still used in our plant, but paved the way for ingenuity and growth. Joining the family firm in 1945, my father helped establish and build the Blue Imp brand. Both would be immensely proud to discover that the fourth generation of the Scott family is now at the helm of this thriving enterprise.

We invite you to  travel ‘back to the future’ with our new Centennial Series featuring iconic Blue Imp pieces, re-imagined and re-designed for the 21st century. We look forward to working with you on your next playground or park project.
