Barz Optics are seeking a US distributor to market its range of Polarized Sunglasses throughout the USA with the possibility of distribution in the Caribbean.

According to Kevin Barr, MD and founder, Barz Optics' profile in the US is growing, supported by online and magazine advertising and displaying at significant boat shows.

'We are looking for a company who we can work closely together with and who preferably has an established sales network and account base,' explains Kevin. 'Barz may be one of the world's smallest international sunglasses companies, but we are certainly one of the most innovative.'
