Waterplay Launches New Brand Alongside MAKR Group
Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, March 1, 2022—Continuing strong growth in the splash pad market globally, Waterplay® aligns its brand and products alongside the newly formed MAKR Group; parent company to Waterplay, as well as Parkworks, Western Canada’s leading park supplier, and Wekid Mfg, a smart factory specializing in stainless steel.
With over 100 skilled professionals in recreation space consultancy, design, product development, steel manufacturing, logistics, engineering, corporate services, the group of companies draws on its expertise across industry segments to bring an exceptional level of skilled service and experience to the aquatic play market. With a twist! The MAKR Group and Waterplay are all about making people’s day, in the board room and on the splash pad.
“When I was first introduced to Waterplay in 2004 I was attracted to the honest, down-to-earth, human element of it,” says MAKR Group President Jill White. “Here was a lovely Canadian couple who started a company with the focus of making communities better. And, as luck would have it, they were looking to pass the company on. That’s what has driven our new branding all these years later, the idea that people matter, that human connections matter. That joy and happiness are both purposeful missions in life and that our group of companies can achieve that with people we connect with everyday.”
In business since 1987, Waterplay has 1000s of splash pad projects installed on six out of seven continents across the globe (they’re still waiting on that business case for Antarctica to make it seven). With support teams located throughout the world and a leading dealer network, Waterplay is always ready to support your splash pad projects with a full product portfolio that will meet your needs: aquatic play, water management, seating, shade, surfacing and toilet facility solutions.
