TX: Eyewear Firm Moves Global HQ, Manufacturing, Distribution to Frisco
14 Apr, 2021
Wiley X, the protective eyewear brand, plans to move its operations from Livermore, CA to Frisco, TX. The new global headquarters, manufacturing and distribution site will be located in the Star Business Park and completed by Q2 2022.
Wiley X joins a growing list of California-based companies moving out of California, with many finding their new base in the Dallas and North Texas region. Wiley X said the central location within the United States will increase efficiencies of shipping and distribution in time and cost, to its wide range of customers.
“Our entire team is committed to piloting smart and sustained growth for many years to come,” said Dan Freeman, co-owner, Wiley X. “To take Wiley X to the next level, Frisco, TX is the ideal location geographically and economically to set us up for a successful future. The City of Frisco and Frisco Economic Development Corporation have already been great business partners.”
“We’re thrilled to make this exciting move to Frisco,” said Myles Freeman, Jr., co-owner, Wiley X. “All of us at Wiley X have our sights set on servicing our customers like never before and this location is a perfect fit to propel our customer experience forward.”
“I am excited to welcome Wiley X to the Lone Star State,” Governor Greg Abbott said. “Wiley X is another in a long list of companies choosing Texas as a home for its global headquarters and manufacturing and distribution center because of our thriving business climate. ‘Made in Texas’ is a powerful brand, and I look forward to watching Wiley X flourish.”
“Frisco is proud to welcome Wiley X to our veteran-ready community,” said Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney. “Innovative companies like Wiley X thrive here. It’s a tremendous asset to have another world-class brand in Frisco creating great jobs for Frisco residents, including our veterans.”
