J.A. Dawson & Company is Now Struthers Recreation


J.A. Dawson & Company, a leading designer of outdoor play and recreation spaces for more than 40 years has been acquired by Struthers Recreation, Inc. Struthers Recreation will continue to represent GameTime as an exclusive distributor in Alabama, Mississippi, and North Florida.

Struthers Recreation is the namesake of Craig Struthers. Craig managed J.A. Dawson & Company for 12 years. The new company will provide the same level of exceptional service customers have come to expect from the accomplished team of play and recreation professionals.

“We are committed as ever to the communities we’ve served for decades,” said Craig Struthers, President of Struthers Recreation. “For the hundreds of customers in parks departments, schools, churches, and other family recreation services the only change is the name. Your communities are still our communities, and we are excited to continue working with you.”

The acquisition was congratulated by Fort Payne, AL-based GameTime. “Craig and his team have created award-winning parks and playgrounds throughout the region and maintained an unprecedented level of customer service,” said Robert Barron, Senior Vice President for GameTime. “This transition marks the end of a decades-long legacy created by the Dawson family and the beginning of a renewed commitment to excellence. Struthers Recreation is a new name, but a familiar team of professionals who love the communities they serve.”

Struthers Recreation will continue operating from their offices at 220 Applegate Trace in Pelham, Alabama. Customers can contact their project managers or customer service specialists by calling (205) 663-5058 or visiting
