The "Made in the USA" label has become a popular selling point as a growing and dedicated contingent of Americans insist on buying American-made products and supporting companies that contribute to the growth of the American economy. Many Americans foster a strong sense of pride in American-made goods, and recognize that companies that keep their product manufacturing in America help keep jobs, profits and tax revenue within America's borders.
The "buy American" movement is not new, but it has seen a rise in popularity over the last few years, especially in the automotive industry. There are many positive effects of the rise in the sales of domestically produced cars and trucks, and one of the most important is the increased amount of new employment opportunities for many Americans. While the automotive industry presents a clear example of the increased demand for American made products, many other industries can boast the high quality craftsmanship that is inherent in American-made goods. Several sunglass manuacturers, for example, have heard the public's demand for American-made sunglasses and have proudly answered the call.

Oakley is one of the world's most popular and bestselling eyewear companies, and all of its sunglasses are crafted in the United States. Oakley was founded in 1975 in Southern California and is still headquartered there. Oakley sunglasses are world renowned for their durability and performance, which are direct results of the top-quality American craftsmanship built into every frame. Oakley has often gone the extra mile to pay homage to its American roots by designing frames that honor America's favorite pastime, America's Olympic team, and even American heroes.
Randolph Engineering sunglasses are made in America, and they are engineered with the same exacting standards that military specifications require.
Randolph Engineering is another eyewear company that truly takes pride in its American heritage and its commitment to the future of American manufacturing. Founded in Randolph, Massachusetts in 1972, the Randolph Engineering company began making dies and machinery used in the optical manufacturing industry. Randolph Engineering held tight to the American notion of hard work and determination in order to become not only a leading provider of machinery but also a proud producer of Military-spec aviator sunglasses for the United States Air Force. Randolph Engineering later won a government bid to be the prime contractor for this eyewear and eventually made the transition into the commercial sunglass industry. The history of Randolph Engineering is a quintessential story of achieving the American dream, and it is this, plus its history with the United States military, that strengthens its unwavering dedication to sustaining American jobs, creating opportunities for the future, and continuing the legacy of quality American craftsmanship.
