Wolf Peak International, Inc. (WPI) was founded in Layton, Utah by a young entrepreneur, Kurt Daems, in 1998. For the first three years the business operated from a rented basement room while inventory was kept in a storage unit. In 2001, the company’s successes allowed for relocation to a small 1,900-square-foot office where the first employee was hired. The company experienced phenomenal growth and built its basic foundations in offering a premium experience to its business partners. Marketing the brand Edge Eyewear, WPI became the first company ever to offer designer safety-rated glasses. They began to innovate several new technologies – including being the first company to make polarized safety eyewear – and promote to new markets that had not been attempted by any other safety eyewear brand. Consequently, WPI tripled its workforce and was bursting at the seams by February of 2005 – it was time to move. The company relocated to a beautiful, custom-designed 15,000-square-foot office warehouse in Layton, Utah, which once again became too small for the business’ growth. In 2015 a larger warehouse was added on to the existing office, increasing the building size to 27,000 and making room for twice as much office space. Today, Edge Eyewear is known for its exceptionally designed products, marketing literature, displays, website, and packaging. WPI currently maintains three divisions: Edge Eyewear sells safety-rated eyewear through U.S. industrial, hardware, and utilities distribution accounts. Edge Eyewear Canada, launched in 2009, supplies the same industries through Canadian distribution. Edge Tactical Eyewear began in 2012 and sells tactical eyewear through U.S. law enforcement, military, and shooting sports distributors. The company continues to see consistent growth as a result of its commitment to innovation, creativity, service, and enthusiasm.
