We’re the MAKR Group’s steel fabrication specialists!
We’ve changed our name! Formerly WMI Manufacturing (Waterplay Manufacturing Incorporated), we’re now Wekid Mfg, a name that is as playful and spirited as the fabricators who work and play here. With 100s of 1000s of successful products installed around the globe, we know steel—it’s been our business for nearly two decades. As part of the MAKR Group of companies, our team consists of over 100 skilled professionals in fabrication, logistics, engineering and corporate services.
Why work at Wekid
You’ll know you’ve found a different kind of manufacturing environment when you work with Wekid. It’s a team of kick-ass, highly skilled trade and engineering pros that are eager to show off their workmanship and
“speak geek” on the details of how we bring projects to life.
Wekid bends stainless steel pipes into different shapes, then welds, machines and assembles those shapes into giant structures that defy gravity to meet the needs of Waterplay’s customers.
Here’s a glimpse into some of our Wekid roles:
The magic really does happen with our Fabricators/Welders. These are the Red Seal pros who can take pride in knowing that everything and anything they do in a day literally transforms lives and connects communities. It’s their craftsmanship and skill that creates the features and structures installed across the globe, creating play spaces where kids can be kids.
In addition to operating welding, cutting and drilling equipment, our Fabricators/Welders operate overhead cranes, as some of our products are big. Really big, like our Mega Soaker at 450 lbs and 17 feet tall.
Being a Warehouse Worker, aka Material Handler, in our Logistics Team is a great role for someone with spatial awareness, attention to detail, and mechanical aptitude. No two days are the same, as you use all kinds of tools and equipment in your work, from computers and handheld scanners to power tools and forklifts.
At times you’re in receiving mode, and at times, you’ll be in shipping mode. You’re always in quality and safety mode, whether picking parts and assembling items or verifying the contents of deliveries.
We also hire Polishers, Painters and Water Systems Technicians, Machinists, Buyers and Logistics Pros at WeKid.
