St. Croix Recreation Teams Up With BCI Burke to Get "Best Product" Out to Minnesota

STILLWATER, MN--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - One of Minnesota's most experienced recreation experts has teamed up with BCI Burke Playgrounds. Johnnie Johnsen, president of St. Croix Recreation, announced that his firm will market Burke playgrounds to parks and recreation departments, schools, and other customers throughout the state.

"I'm determined to get the best product out there to my customers. I believe that BCI Burke has that little something extra, and I'm pleased to represent Burke products," said Johnsen.

Johnsen said he was attracted to BCI Burke's innovative play equipment, including the newest Intensity line that combines traditional play with fitness oriented activities.

"Playgrounds really serve two separate functions, and I think Burke's equipment speaks to both of those," Johnsen said. "They should, first of all, be a place where kids can get out and quickly blow off steam, work off energy, and have fun doing it. But they should also be places where kids can learn to communicate, work together, and share. Intensity, especially, supports that goal."

And after having watched the recreation industry change throughout the years, Johnsen believes Burke's products are on the cutting edge.

"They pay attention to the trends, and to what's important for the well being of children. They're also sensitive to environmental concerns, ease of installation, and flexibility with their representatives. They're team players, and that's what I'm looking for," Johnsen said.

BCI Burke, with headquarters in Fond du Lac, Wisc., is a premier manufacturer of commercial playground, park, and recreation equipment. More information is available at More information.
