American Born

In 1972, two engineers emigrating from Poland opened an optical tool and machinery factory in Randolph, Massachusetts. With a tireless work ethic and determination, they transitioned the company to an elite eyewear manufacturer, eventually winning contracts with the US Air Force to produce military spec aviator sunglasses.

As the demand for quality, American-heritage products increased, Randolph Engineering—a leading tool maker in the thriving eyewear manufacturing industry—rose to the occasion. The company progressed to the retail market, introducing the Randolph brand with a full line of eyewear. The machinery and tooling, built by hand four decades ago is still utilized in our factory today. 

Today, we remain a family owned and operated company, three generations later. Our founders’ legacy of integrity, hard workand respect—for our team, our community and our environment—has shaped every one of our brand initiatives and our brand culture as a whole.
