In the early ‘90s, supply chain management underwent a significant change due to globalization. The escalating cost of goods and product management and the need to improve complex logistics issues suddenly became paramount. Rol Grit, a former Supply Chain leader at one of the premier Office Furniture manufacturers in West Michigan, partnered with Bob Wood and G&T Industries to create World Resource Partners in 1995 to focus on a global manufacturing network for better asset and cost management. Like most startups, it required long days and often long nights. WRP first made a name for itself by importing high-quality drawer slides in 1997. Our company remains a leader in developing ethical, reliable, and global manufacturing solutions across multiple commodities and industries.
