Waterplay's huge expansion

A major expansion at a Kelowna company’s manufacturing facility will allow Waterplay Solutions Corp. to pump out more products, meeting a growing global demand for splash parks.

Shanley Hutchinson, the creative manager at the long-time Okanagan company, says Waterplay is merging its corporate and manufacturing facilities to “better support” its “global efforts.”

When it’s finished in the spring of 2019, the project will result in an approximately 3,000-square-metre headquarters that will house the company’s management, sales, marketing, support, design, logistics, and manufacturing teams.

According to building permits from the City of Kelowna the new headquarters, located at 805 Crowley Ave., will cost Waterplay $2 million.

Hutchinson said the new facility will allow Waterplay to triple its production capacity, double its production workers, and increase efficiency by 50 per cent.

For more on the unique features of the new headquarters, as well as more on the decades-long history of the company, check out the full story on Castanet's sister business news website, Okanagan Edge.
