Celebrities from the silver to small screens alike are wearing these Made in USA sunglasses, and it’s helping sales as ABC News reports.

Robert Redford in 2001′s “Spy Game,” Tom Cruise in 2013′s “Oblivion,” Don Draper in “Mad Men,” all these men have one thing in common: wearing Made in USA Randolph Engineering sunglasses on the screen.

Although celebrities might make it a seeming Hollywood thing, Randolph sunglasses are made in the small town of Randolph, Massachusetts, population 32,000. Which is a bit larger then the 2,500-person town Manchester Wood resides in.

Regardless, like us, they’re rich in heritage as Peter Waszkiewicz, CEO stated. Waszkiewicz’s father invented the sunglasses in 1975, when 90 percent of the frames sold in the US were made in America. Waszkiewicz said now just 3 percent are made in the US (ABC News)… “In the ’80s, everything went overseas. … We stayed. … And we love it and we’re on the forefront of bringing optical manufacturing back to this country,” he said.

Today “RE” ships all over the world, while continuing to make it in America, and creating new jobs.

Ekene Ofodile, Senior Vice President of Sales told ABC News that “In Japan, in China, in Korea, made in the USA really matters.”

“The whole ‘made in the USA’ movement is growing,” Waszkiewicz said. “We’ve had 60 percent growth in our employees since 2009.”

Sales are up and company made dozens of new hires in the last year and a half.

“We’re committed to manufacturing here in the US. … I mean, when you have a pilot flying a multimillion-dollar jet, you can’t afford to have a screw fall out,” he said. “We’ve been making eyewear for 40 years. We’re all about quality. We’re well-known for our quality and are so confident, we’ll guarantee our frames for life.”
