National IPA Purchasing Cooperative

Playgrounds That Move You Without All The Paperwork!

A playground purchase doesn’t need to be a process of writing specifications, issuing RFP’s and jumping through bureaucratic hoops. Burke, a provider of Playground Systems and Related Items, can ease the purchasing process through a partnership with National IPA.

Purchasing your Burke playground through National IPA means:

  • The solicitation has already been completed for you.
  • There are no fees, minimums, or obligations to participate.
  • Your playground is backed by our exclusive Generations Warranty® - the longest and strongest in the industry.
  • Our ISO 9001:2008 certification confirms we are consistently ensuring high quality and exceptional customer service.
  • We all share one earth, and at Burke we want to preserve our planet for future generations of children. For that reason, we’ve implemented a variety of practices to help us help keep our shared world a better, greener place. Burke holds an ISO 14001:2004 certification, reflecting a systematic program for achieving aggressive goals in everything from recycling to renewable energy to environmental manufacturing processes.

This agency works with educators to deliver creative solutions that help schools to operate more efficiently and effectively. They provide innovative solutions spanning every facet of education, from classroom and curriculum development to operations, including food service, maintenance and budgeting.
