USA Workforce

ArtCraft started manufacturing ophthalmic dress eyewear in Rochester, NY, in 1918. Throughout the decades, they developed expertise in working with various metal and plastic materials, along with component innovations adapted to their highest of optical frame standards. In 1995, they added industrial safety Rx frame products to their dress frame production, as safety styling demands had shifted from the basic S-7-style safety frame to contemporary dress eyewear designs. Utilizing their existing in-house talents of optical frame designers, manufacturing engineers, and factory personnel, the focus was - and remains - to set the quality standard for safety Rx frames, which they were best qualified in establishing. In 2013, the commitment to the safety frame program resulted in a separated USA Workforce division dedicated to offering unique and fashion-demanded styling with exceptional comfort, modern lens design accommodation, and quality that surpasses all ANSI Z87.1 standards for safety eyewear.
