In 1989, Jesse Ayon, Co-Owner and President of World Wide Imaging Supplies was introduced to the print and imaging manufacturing industry, commencing with at the time, the largest ribbon manufacturer in the US located in Simi Valley, California. Through natural dedication, strategic leadership, and of course much support from his wife, ten years later in 1999, Jesse’s hard-work earned him a spot in a C-Level executive position for the multi-million-dollar establishment. Throughout those years, Jesse first-hand mastered the start-to-end construction process of an exemplary toner cartridge and built a name for himself in the printing industry.
In 2004, Pamela convinced Jesse to move back to her hometown in San Antonio, Texas where they eventually established a print and imaging supplies business, respectively know today as World Wide Imaging Supplies. World Wide has evolved from a once 80 sq. ft. home office to a multi-million-dollar establishment that provides effective print management solutions as well as quality imaging and office products.
For the last 15 years, World Wide has fueled thousands of educational institutes, federal government agencies, and fortune 1000 corporations throughout the United States.
