NOTE: During 2009 all manufacturing of Empower Playgrounds equipment was done in Ghana. Due to materials issues, equipment reliability was not what EPI expected and wanted. 2010 was a transition year moving manufacturing rights to Playworld Systems Inc. in the United States. 2011 will be a good representative year for how EPI operates now and into the future.
