We are Everix, the future of optical filter industry

Our Story

Our Story

Everix was born of an idea inspired by the optical fiber manufacturing process. Our co-founder, Dr. Hooman Banaei, turned his storage unit into a workshop where the initial proof-of-concept work was performed. He was soon joined by co-founder Justin Boga to develop a professional facility and processes that led to the first commercial products in 2018. Everix has ever since evolved into a community of caring members who genuinely want to do good for the world.

Among its members, Everix is metaphorically thought of as a village, with its citizens called Everixians. Everixians strive to improve health and life quality for all global civilians by innovative products that enable innovation in fields of medicine, science, and technology.

The name Everix was inspired by Mt. Everest to remind Everixians every day of their commitment to reach the highest points of the industry and impact lives of global citizens to an extent never possible before in the thin-film industry.

Our Mission & Values

Our Mission

The current optical filter industry has not seen sufficient innovation in decades, limiting customers to only two choices of either high performance or affordability at scale. The world has unaddressed needs for affordable, high performance optical filters in the areas of personal health, energy, automotive, and consumer electronics to save and improve life quality for billions. Everix brings both high performance and affordability together to offer a world of new possibilities to our customers, and ultimately, all global civilians as the end users.

  2. We do what is best for our customers, because our impact on the world will be maximized with successful customers.

  3. A+ness and leadership with empathy pave all roads in our village. We believe there is an A+ player in all humans, and we strive to bring the best out of each Everixian by leading with empathy and empowering Everixians at all levels to grow to their best potential.

  5. We only participate in the business of saving and improving lives.
