Founder and President
About Amos Glick:
Amos was born on June 3, 1977, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where he still resides. He attended a parochial school through the 9th grade. Having been raised on a farm with 13 brothers and sisters, he learned early on that competing was a way of life.
In 1994, he started building storage barns. Once, while traveling, he was listening to a radio program about the dangers of arsenic used in the manufacturing of wooden playground equipment. This was his inspiration to make a difference, and the idea for Swing Kingdom was born!
Over the last 16 years, his vision to manufacture the strongest, safest, vinyl-clad playsets in the industry has been achieved. As a result of hard work and dedication, Swing Kingdom has earned the status of being the “Largest Vinyl Swing Set and Playset Manufacturer in the United States.”
Amos is also the creative genius behind all the unique, fun playsets and accessories offered by Swing Kingdom. His passion for the product and dedication to safety have continually inspired Amos to design some of the most unique and fun playsets in the industry.
Phi Viet Le
Chief Operating Officer
About Phi Viet Le:
His title might read Chief Operating Officer, but the duties and tasks that he performs extend well beyond the scope of his job. Phi began his successful career with Swing Kingdom in February 2011. He has taken advantage of every opportunity to fully experience all aspects of Swing Kingdom’s operations. Prior positions include Office Manager, Scheduler, Driver, and Installer. Phi’s thirst for innovation and generating new ideas vaulted him into a management role at the Kingdom. He also performs graphic design work and handles all of the IT initiatives for the company.
There’s a multitude of things that Phi can do, as he wears several hats with pride and dedication. His wide range of talents includes, but are not limited to leadership, team motivation, sales, marketing, project management, customer service, lean manufacturing, Windows and Mac software troubleshooting, systems administration, logo design, photography, strategic planning, and carpentry. Also worthy of noting is that Phi is a Certified Playground Safety Instructor (CPSI).
“As a Certified Playground Safety Instructor, I am dedicated to carrying out Swing Kingdom’s commitment to manufacturing superior quality playsets for a lifetime of fun.”
The most important responsibility for Le is implementing the Swing Kingdom vision and mission that was set forth by the company’s founder. This daily task is achieved by creating enjoyable experiences and memories for all employees, dealers, vendors, and customers.

He enjoys photographing products and children with unique photos shoots and styles. His hobbies are playing billiards and watching and playing basketball and football.
How Phi got his name is interesting. His parents were on their way to America and one of their flight layovers was in the Philippines where he decided to make his grand entrance into the world, in the jungle hospital of Bataan, Philippines. So his parents named him “Phi,” short for the Philippines, to remind him that he was born in the Philippines. His middle name, “Viet,” is short for Vietnam to remind him of his roots. The last name “Le” to carry on the legacy of the family name.

Its ability to adapt to the wants and needs of both children and adults makes it my favorite.”
