On our first trip of the year, OLLI visited the Peoria headquarters of Maui Jim, now the fastest growing premium polarized sunglass maker in the world.
During our tour, we saw first-hand how the company engineers its PolarizedPlus lenses, which combat the sun's intense glare and harmful ultraviolet rays.
Frannie Heine, human resources specialist and native Peorian, also discussed the company's "Aloha Spirit" philosophy, its move from Hawaii to Peoria, and how its "ohana" (family) has steadily built a cult following for its products.
OLLI thanks Maui Jim and Frannie for a wonderful morning of learning. To find out more about the company, please visit www.mauijim.com.
