our founder and president


Jack W. Worsham, was the first plastic injection molder in North Carolina, and has been a plastics industry innovator for over five decades.

He founded a new plastic company−Intertech Corporation−in 1974 and grew it into a regional leader in blow-molded plastic containers—and the largest ball pit ball manufacturer in North America.

His multi-patented HyGenie ball pit ball washing systems have been sold to customers worldwide, including Disney, Universal Studios and Ikea. In November 2013 he spun Intertech’s soft play group into a new company—21st Century Products, Inc.

Mr. Worsham holds the patents to several new products outside of the soft play industry, with plans to introduce them under the 21st Century Products, Inc. banner.
