About Worldwide
Air Coolers

Worldwide has designed and manufactured shell and tube heat exchangers and air-cooled heat exchangers for customers across the globe since 1995.  In 2018 under the umbrella of SHECO Industries, we split Worldwide into two companies to focus on their individual products lines.  Worldwide Air Coolers relocated to just west of Tulsa and has not looked back.  

Worldwide Air Coolers continues to design and manufacture air-cooled heat exchanger solutions to serve the power, oil, gas and petrochemical processing industries. Worldwide Air Coolers is quickly expanding its reputation of technically talented company that is focused on the customer.
