Worldwide Technologies was founded in February 2006 by two Kentucky business men, Mike Jones (owner of Coles Bend Lumber in Smiths Grove, KY) and Kenny Whitworth (owner of Whitworth Tool in Hardinsburg, KY). The company began operation in a warehousing facility in Bowling Green, KY with 5 employees. In just a few years the company expanded to 50+ employees and hundreds of customers. In March 2010 WWT moved their operations to a 27,000 square foot state of the art facility in Franklin, KY where it now resides with nearly 60 full time employees.
