Randolph Engineering Sunglasses
Former Royal Air Force navigator Jan Waszkiewicz and machinist Stanley Zaleski both immigrated to America with a few bucks and a dream: to build the world’s best sunglass.
With a background in engineering and some serious hand skills, they built a proprietary 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 the doors to their factory in a small town called Randolph, just outside of Boston, MA.
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 manufactures have gone overseas. Randolph decided to stay here.
We start with top-grade materials. Then 50 different people cut, mold, stamp, twist, solder, plate and polish in a six-week process that includes more than 200 steps. Mostly by hand. All to produce just one pair of sunglasses. With specifications precise enough to meet the promise of our founders and the demands the world’s toughest critics: the U.S. Department of Defense, pilots, naval aviators, astronauts and YOU.
SkyTec™ Mineral Glass lenses are ground and polished for distortion-free optical clarity, then chemically-tempered to help resist breakage and scratches. World-renowned for superior vision, the material is drop ball-tested with a 5/8-inch steel ball from 50 inches to meet FDA and ANSI safety standards.
