Lou Picks | The Randolph Engineering "Sportsman" Aviators
Randolph Engineering was founded in 1972 by two engineers, Jan Waszkiewicz and Stanley Zaleski. Both worked hard to transform their American dream into a reality. At inception, the company focused on designing and manufacturing optical tools and machinery for the trade. The vision of the cofounders was to build the cornerstone of the business on advanced engineering principles. In time, the company turned its attention to making its own eyewear, using the tools and machinery designed and manufactured by the company itself.
In 1982, RE became the prime contractor for military-style aviation flight glasses for the U.S. Department of Defense. During this decade, we solidified ourselves as the lead vendor to various U.S. Government Agencies for sunglasses, ophthalmic eyewear, and certain niche optical products. By the early 1990’s, we expanded our sales to offer commercial lines of premium products: sunglasses, shooting eyewear, and prescription frames.
Today, Randolph Engineering, Inc. has evolved into a full service commercial business with highly skilled engineers and experienced staff.Manufacturing operations are performed at our headquarters located in Randolph, Massachusetts.
Their eyewear appeals not only to military pilots and active outdoor enthusiasts who favor the performance of our products, but also to those who appreciate our distinctive quality.
