Randolph USA: Extends its Manufacturing Expertise from the Military to Contemporary Eye Style


RANDOLPH, Mass.—From start to finish, Randolph USA has been building frames in America, at its facility outside of Boston, since 1973. Today, the company’s consistent investment, its strong relationships with all branches of the U.S. armed forces, and embarking on new innovations in specialties like precision sports and expansion into lifestyle sun and ophthalmics, is transforming the family-run firm. Randolph has added to its in-house manufacturing experts by augmenting its management team with new product development, marketing and sales expertise to reach new customers and a new generation of wearers.

Stated, Peter Waszkiewicz, Randolph’s president and CEO, “I grew up in this business. We have many general manufacturing experts among us but we have brought in a team of specialists—in product development, global marketing, and sales, to really launch our business forward. We are staying true to our DNA but are intent on growing our brand.”

This year, Randolph’s 23k white gold aviator sunglasses with AGX polarized SkyTec glass lens was a finalist in this year’s first-ever Accessories Council Design Excellence Awards.

Said Waszkiewicz, “Expanding our place in the optical channel is a priority for us. We recognize and appreciate the independent eyecare professional and feel that we can offer them an alternative U.S. made product that is unique and an option to the mainstream eyewear companies. Randolph has great things planned for 2020.”
