Inspired by history

Inspired by history

By Tom Kallman, President and CEO

We’re inspired by the timeless traditions of global trade, history’s first supply chains, and the explorers who braved the unknown to claim them for their kingdoms. You can see it in our office. The preferred decoration at KW HQ in Waldwick, New Jersey is an artifact of exploration — ancient maps (one has ancient candle wax stuck to it), model ships, and souvenirs of our own trade journeys. We’ve even got our friend Al Worden’s West Point foot locker in the hall.

In this spirit, we’ve found our pride and purpose in creating new ways to help suppliers and buyers advance their global trade interests. Did you know we introduced the worldwide web to the Farnborough Air Show organizers in 1998, that our Creative Services division is one of the fastest growing custom stand builders in the business, or that we’ve been awarded the President’s “E” and “E Star” recognition for our export promotion efforts and support of U.S. exporters?

Our latest enterprise, launched in 2022, is a partnership with the new supply chain network. Sourcehere connects thousands of suppliers and buyers directly — you can message each other online, anywhere, anytime. We’re even hosting all of our pavilion directories on their platform now. We never stop hustling to give you a supply chain advantage because if you wait for opportunity to knock, you’re already too late.
