The seeds of Global Vision® were planted in 1981 when Richard Wright (President and Founder) started a wholesale business that sold a variety of products that included sunglasses. Four years later, the business expanded into Florida’s coastal areas, including Daytona Beach (home of Daytona Bike Week, also known as one of the world’s largest motorcycle events).
It was here that Richard’s expertise in purchasing and merchandising began to surface, especially when it came to sunglasses. He knew that his customers wanted sunglasses that were stylish, quality made, had a great fit and were reasonably priced. This vision helped him establish the glasses’ overwhelming popularity. It soon became apparent that his future was in eyewear, and the Global Vision Eyewear Corporation was born.
The company has expanded several times and now sells a wide variety of eyewear including sunglasses, goggles and safety glasses. Global Vision currently warehouses nearly a million pairs of glasses and goggles.
Global Vision continues to grow by meeting the needs of customers and retailers throughout the world with great products, pricing, service and guarantees.
