Dale Schaffenacker, Owner, Molanda Company

Molanda Company is a commercial playground, park, and recreation equipment company and is located in central Illinois.  During our years in the playground industry, we’ve noticed the smaller projects are sometimes neglected in favor of the larger, “high dollar” ones.  We provide products and expertise to organizations looking to start or expand their outdoor recreational space.  We represent a variety of manufacturers that allows us to offer a wide range of options that will enhance your project for years to come.  These manufacturers were selected for:

  • Quality products
  • Reasonable pricing
  • Customer service

We have worked with these manufacturers, in most cases, for numerous years and am pleased and proud to represent their product lines.

Product Lines

The items in this website are “commercial grade” and are not for purchase by the general public.

Molanda Company’s Primary Customers are:

  • Municipalities
  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Daycare facilities
  • Campgrounds
  • Neighborhood Associations


We don’t discount prices only to hit you with additional freight costs to make up the difference. Likewise, we don’t offer free freight, only to make up the difference in higher product pricing. Be sure to look at the total price of the equipment and freight when making comparisons.


Molanda Company is also unique in that we offer installation consulting if desired.  This is an option when you want or need supplemental advice in addition to the manufacturers directions.  Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal. An incorrectly built product will not serve you or your intended users.

Customer Service

Planning and purchasing a playground is no easy task! Many factors must be taken into consideration in order for your playground to be a success. We can walk you through the process and utilize my years of experience in the playground industry. Molanda Company is not in business to take orders and sell you some steel and plastic. We want to help you plan and select the right equipment for your project.

We look forward to talking with you about your specific playground needs!
