Meet Bevan and Chris, the men behind BANZ®
For Bevan Beames, it all started one summer afternoon in January 2001 on the ride back from hospital with his new born and a young mum trying to ward off the blazing Australian sun.
As a veteran sunnies buff since his teens, Bevan began the quest for a cute pair of sunglasses for Junior but met with frustration. Some barely fit while their pointed ends made them unsafe. Others were downright dangerous with filters that dilated the pupils, allowing more, not less, radiation.
Bevan set to work, designed his own version and produced a prototype. With Banks refusing a lifeline, and less than a 50-50 chance of succeeding, he decided to call a friend, his Navy mate, Chris Albonico. Baby Banz was born.
Today, BANZ® sunglasses, earmuffs and sun hats guard infants, toddlers and kids from the environment in Australia, New Zealand, North America, UK & Europe, Africa and Asia.
