Wiley X Breaks Ground at New Headquarters in Frisco, Texas

Livermore, CA. (June 22, 2021) – Wiley X®, the leading premium protective eyewear brand,  broke ground in Frisco, Texas, where its global headquarters, manufacturing and distribution site is set to be located in the Star Business Park by 2022. Wiley X joins a growing list of California-based companies seeking new locations, with many finding their new homes in the Dallas and North Texas region. The central location within the United States will increase efficiencies of shipping and distribution, in both time and cost, to the wide range of customers Wiley X supports.

Co-Owners of Wiley X, Myles Freeman, Jr. and Dan Freeman, were on-site with shovels in hand and hard hats on to commemorate the milestone of this brand. Naturally, all participants, which included Mayor Jeff Cheney, Councilman John Keating, Councilman Bill Woodward, and Councilman Brian Livingston were equipped with the brand’s iconic safety-rated eyewear to ensure the event went off without a hitch. Other attendees included Gary Garley, Jason Dudley and Rick Fletcher of the Frisco EDC Board of Directors as well as Fire Chief Mark Piland and Assistant Chief Greg Ward of the Frisco Police Department.

“Wiley X is committed to piloting smart and sustained growth for many years to come and a central location like Texas is a prime place to call home for our brand,” said Dan Freeman, Co-Owner of Wiley X. “Frisco is a perfect fit for Wiley X and as a veteran-founded, family-owned company, we are excited to call Texas home as we begin to grow and contribute to the area while supporting the community,” expressed Myles Freeman, Jr., Co-Owner of Wiley X.

Frisco – known as “Sports City USA” – is a perfect fit for Wiley X, a company committed to protection and performance for active pursuits such as fishing, motorsports and shooting, as well as for the government/first responder network. Wiley X aligns well with Texas values, with a long history of providing protective eyewear to the United States military and being veteran-founded and family-owned. Breaking ground and the move to Frisco will inspire the fabrication of a state-of-the-art building to elevate brand operations and will include a flagship retail store for Wiley X fans and local customers to enjoy.
