Worthington was created in 1985 by a businessman that had ties to the architectural products industry. The intent of the creation of Worthington was to sell architectural products and use the profits to put his two children through college. After graduation, one of the two children was brought into Worthington to manage and operate it as a career. Through the 1990’s Worthington (known as “Worthington Group, LTD) had great success in delivering high quality products to custom home builders and homeowners through catalog sales. Around the year 2000, and for whatever reason, the owners at Worthington decided that this wasn’t the career path that they wanted to follow and Worthington closed its doors to the sale of its products. One year later in 2001 a different group of individuals wanted to operate Worthington and asked the old owners if they would entertain the idea of opening the doors with the agreement that they would become 50% owner in the business. At that point Kyle Boatwright was hired on at Worthington as a sales associate to sell for the company. During Kyle’s early employment he was attending Troy University while working on a Master’s in Business administration and had just completed his business degree in Marketing from Troy. After being at Worthington for over a year, Kyle approached the current managing partners of Worthington, with a financial partner, and asked for an opportunity of ownership. At the time Worthington was not in great shape and the owners agreed to “handover” the keys in exchange for assuming the debts that were accumulated by the company over the previous management. An agreement was reached and in 2003 Worthington was assigned over to Kyle and the financial partner and Worthington was re-incorporated into a new corporation – Worthington Millwork, LLC.
