WORLDWIDE SUPPLY WORLDWIDE SUPPLY PEOPLE ARE THE DIFFERENCE W orldwide Supply, head- quartered in Franklin, New Jersey, is a global supplier of network and telecommu- nications equipment and services, and a leader in the secondary market for used and refurbished equipment including rout- ers, switches, and networking services. The company was co-founded by its CEO, Jay VanOrden and COO Jim Smith, who are firm believers that one company’s castoffs can always become another company’s treasure. VanOrden has been in the technology resale business for over 30 years. He found- ed his first company, MSI Communications, in 1988, and grew it over the next twelve years, selling it to a large public company in 2000. “The reason for the acquisition wasn’t for an exit out of the business,” he insists.
