Randolph

Randolph Engineering, Incorporated was founded in 1972 by Polish immigrants, Jan Waszkiewicz and Stanley Zaleski. They met a decade before while working at a small tool & die company in South Boston. The two entrepreneurs built tooling, dies and machinery for the then thriving US optical manufacturing industry.

In the late 1970′s Randolph Engineering started manufacturing Mil-Spec Aviator sunglasses for the United States Air Force as a subcontractor producing in excess of 200,000 sunglasses annually. Led by Jan’s sons, Randolph won the government bid to become the prime contractor in 1982. By the late 1980′s Randolph had expanded into the commercial sunglass market after civilians learned about the quality of its sunglasses and prescription frames through military channels.

Today Randolph remains an iconic brand accelerated by a growing demand for genuine, well-made eyewear with a strong American heritage. Tried and true manufacturing methods are maintained using the machinery and tooling created by the founders. Each pair of sunglasses is made nearly entirely by hand in a detailed 200 step process at their Randolph, Massachusetts facility, and come with a lifetime replacement guarantee for every solder joint. The company is still owned and operated by three generations of the Waszkiewicz and Zaleski families along with a highly skilled and dedicated American workforce.
