Why Choose Burke
By Tim Ahern
In 2012, it seems that the choices for many things are ever-increasing. Whether it is cell phones, education, TVs, restaurants, shopping, or even something as simple as what kind of cereal to buy, there are dizzying options for the best value and product. Choices are great, as long as you have all of the essentials to make the most informed decisions. There are many choices for playgrounds too, however, at BCI Burke, ours is the only playground company that offers the total package for park, recreation and playground needs—the Total Cost of Ownership Package™.
Among our dedicated team including both at the corporate office in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and our reps around the world, we constantly challenge ourselves that with so many playground companies out there, why should our customers choose us to be their playground provider? The answer always comes back to the same simple answer--at Burke, we understand that playground equipment is a huge investment for you; both in money and time. That’s why we take the most care at every step of the playground planning and purchasing process, to make sure that we are providing you the best overall value and that you are receiving exactly what you need.
When it comes to customer service and you need help, you'll get a live person who's only a few steps from our factory floor. The support professional will access technical drawings of your playground, identify what part needs to be replaced, and let you know exactly when to expect your replacement. Unlike other manufacturers you don't pay prorated costs for items covered under Burke's Generations Warranty™.
And when you need an even more personal assessment, your Burke representative will be happy to come to your location to assist you in person. Our representatives are experienced playground experts who can help you identify and solve your playground challenges with care and competence.
At Burke, we believe doing the extra things, such as using superior materials and finishes, and including value added resources, such as a NPPS Playground Supervision Safety Kit, Customized Maintenance Kit and Intensity® Curriculum, is simply the right way to do business. This Reinventing Play™ approach is changing the way people look at the cost of their playgrounds. That is why we will continue to focus our energy in the places that matter most—the play needs of our kids. This incentive is the reason why we are able to offer superb and consistent customer service and the confidence that our playgrounds are genuinely the very best in design and safety. And it's your assurance that no playground is worth more than one from BCI Burke.
Cooperative Purchasing – Choice Facility Partners and HGACBuy
Buying a playground can take a lot of time and effort for agencies that set their own specifications, issue RFPs and analyze bids. That’s why BCI Burke has partnered with two organizations that help governmental organizations simplify the process: Choice Facility Partners and HGACBuy. By joining, members can receive competitively priced, legally secure contracts for Burke playground equipment.
Using Choice Facility Partners or HGACBuy for your next playground equipment purchase could shorten your procurement cycle by months, while at the same time ensuring compliance with competitive bid requirements. Because BCI Burke participates in HGACBuy and Choice Facility Partners, members of these organizations can simply purchase playgrounds and related equipment that has already been awarded based on carefully written specifications.
Learn more about cooperative purchasing at bciburke.com/hgacbuy and bciburke.com/cfp.
To purchase the playground or product of your choice through one of these programs, simply call your BCI Burke representative and let them know you're purchasing through Choice Facility Partners or HGACBuy. You can reach your Burke representative by calling 800-266-1250 or visiting bciburke.com/findrep.
