Statewide Tour of Manufacturers Stops at Custom Welding in Waite Park

Abby Faulkner

WAITE PARK – The 6-day Minnesota Tour of Manufacturing is on, and Thursday’s stop is Custom Welding of Waite Park.

The purpose of the tour, sponsored in part by Central Minnesota Manufacturers Association, is to showcase the vitality of the manufacturing industry throughout the state.

Carmie Mick is one of the owners of Custom Welding. She says they chose to host the open house because they want to spread the word about the importance of skilled welders, which Mick says are hard to find.

Mick says they have 12 welders at Custom Welding right now, and they do recruit from welding programs at area colleges.

The Tour of Manufacturing will wrap up on Saturday.
