Randolph Engineering, Inc. was founded in 1972 by two Polish immigrants, Jan Waszkiewicz and Stanley Zaleski. They began their business by manufacturing the Mil-Spec Aviator sunglass for the United States Air Force which expanded in the 1980s into the commercial sunglass sector. This expansion was due to civilians learning of the quality of the sunglasses through military channels. Randolph has been making sunglasses for the US military and air forces for well over 40 years. Celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Bradley Cooper, and Amy Adams have been spotted wearing Randolph sunglasses. Randolph sunglasses are quality handcrafted frames.

American Optical, first known as AO Heritage, began as early as 1826 when William Beecher, a jeweler, observed a pair of shamefully imported spectacles. Beecher felt he could do a much better job with the spectacles and that is exactly what he did. By 1876, sunglasses, sunwear, and goggles were becoming very promising and popular with the population. Throughout the two World Wars, American Optical provided the U.S. troops with optical eyewear. As a result of American Optical’s tremendous contribution to the War Effort, the company was presented with the Army-Navy “E” award for their dedication to the cause.
