ENGINEERED FROM THE GROUND UP

With a background in engineering and some serious hand skills, they built a propriety solder machine unlike any other. They patented a 200-step process. They created nearly indestructible frame joints, all with materials sourced in the U.S. In 1973, they opened doors to their factory in a small town called Randolph, just outside of Boston, MA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Military Heritage

 

BUILT TO MILITARY STANDARDS 

We wanted to make a difference.  Leave a mark.  Be proud of something.  So, in 1978, we joined forces with the U.S. Military to produce the HGU-4/P Aviator for fighter pilots.  

Each Aviator is built to strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948 standards, a 20-page document detailing the most complex manufacturing specs around.

THE ONLY REMAINING METAL EYEWEAR COMPANY IN THE U.S.

Today Randolph is still family-owned and operated. And are still handcrafting the finest eyewear with top-grade materials, classic designs and a relentless attention to detail and quality. But what's different about Randolph? All the other eyewear manufacturers have gone overseas.  Randolph decided to stay manufaturing in the USA. 100% American made.
