Wayward Machine Co. was founded in 2016 by long time metal worker Bobby Middleton, who developed his metal working skills through years of building and restoring vintage and antique motorcycles. 
When friends in the Chicago interior design and hospitality world began requesting Bobby to hand-make custom and unique pieces in his shop, Wayward Machine Co was born.
With the aid of his wife and business partner, Kathrine Middleton, the company has grown to employ a team of welders and fabricators, moved into a bigger shop, and continues to produce high quality custom fabrication projects the whole WAMCO family is proud to provide to the client.
