WHY CHOOSE UZBL?

Why Choose UZBL?

Even before UZBL became a company, our founder, Joe Pearce, had a passion for the stewardship of the next generation and empowering children’s education. Joe’s passion for design coupled with a curiosity of learning led to the evolution of UZBL.

As Joe states: “I’m thankful for the time that I spent with our kids when they were young.  Back in the late 2000’s my two daughters and I would battle it out on the Nintendo Wii court, field, or bowling lanes, arms swinging and gripping the spongey silicone grips. The same cushioning grips provided the idea for our first product – the first iPad case back in 2010 made for kids.”

Twelve years later, the UZBL products have evolved greatly from customer feedback, extensive development, prototyping, and third-party testing. With a solid foundation of supplying device protection to the K12 School sector, UZBL continues to innovate to support the needs of both the on-campus classroom and homeschooling.

Today, we are fortifying our reputation for integrity that has been earned over the past decade by making investments not only in the design of new products, but also how our products impact our environment. Still today, UZBL maintains an aesthetic edge that Joe and our founding designer Dave Weston built into the brand.

Why choose UZBL? Simply put, UZBL cares. From design to the environment, to the classroom, to delivering on schedule as promised, UZBL cares about the end user and the impact they feel from using a UZBL product. The feel, the functionality, and the usability all lead back to the end user or consumer of our products. Through feedback and device evolution not only with the Apple iPad, but with the Google Chromebook and Microsoft Surface, UZBL will continue to innovate and always welcomes feedback.

Our direct consumers who purchase from Amazon or through our amazing reseller partners will experience the same level of customer service and satisfaction that some of our oldest school districts experience. Most of our team members at UZBL have been working alongside Joe since our inception.

The UZBL operations are led by Brad Fisher, who shares the same level of passion for end users as Joe. Brad and team ensure the UZBL supply chain remains stable. Even through recent difficult times, Brad and the UZBL team have empowered countless device rollouts and made them happen on time as planned. Throughout the US market, UZBL has a dedicated team of sales representatives to assist direct customers as well as our valued reseller partners.

THE FOUNDER

Joe Pearce enjoys building products, companies, restaurants, and houses...basically anything that adds value into other people's lives.

Prior to UZBL Joe had just sold his bustling Mexican food restaurant and hand built home on the North Shore of Kauai.

This came on the heels of Apple's revolutionary foray into the world of tablet computers and Joe's desire to follow their lead into unchartered tech territory.

After handing over the keys to his Kauai life Joe returned to his native home of Orange County, CA and rekindled his decade old business partnership with a prominent Southern California product designer friend. It is their collaboration that brings the UZBL brand products to market.
