Wiley X will relocate a headquarters, manufacturing and distribution site by next year in the Star Business Park, Frisco. The company comes from California, and manufactures military-grade eyewear. Construction kicked off in May after co-owners Myles Freeman, Jr. and Dan Freeman joined Mayor Jeff Cheney and council members John Keating, Bill Woodard and Brian Livingston with shovels and hard-hats.



On March 17, the Frisco Economic Development Corp. approved a $371,800 performance agreement with Wiley X for the company to relocate. Wiley X aims to be operational in Frisco by mid-2023, said FEDC President Jason Ford in the March meeting. 800-776-7842. www.wileyx.com
