Fosta-Tek specializes in the design and manufacture of polymer-based optical components and coatings for OEM customers. As a one-stop shop for the design and manufacture of optical components, Fosta-Tek has become a leading source for military, safety and consumer lenses and industrial optics sourced in North America. Our integrated molding and coating operations result in economical solutions for high volume requirements.
Our experience with designing and manufacturing plastic lenses and optics dates back to the 1960's. Much of the optical know-how, technology and processes employed at Fosta-Tek were developed by the original Foster Grant.
The original Foster Grant molding operation focused on manufacturing a variety of sunwear frames. The lenses at that time were made of glass. In the early 1970's Foster Grant introduced molded acrylic lenses to the trade and subsequently developed silicone hardcoats to protect the lenses from scratching. The current management team was very active in the engineering of these developments. By 1982, Foster Grant no longer manufactured glass lenses for eyewear. By the late 1980's Foster Grant had begun bringing its lense manufacturing technology into the safety and military markets.
