Rx-Safety is a leading online retailer of prescription safety glasses, prescription sunglasses, prescription eyeglasses, designer eyewear, and safety glasses. The company manages its web sites and corporate accounts from its facility in Middlesex, NJ, where Rx-Safety also has full plastic and glass optical labs in-house. Their state-of-the-art facility houses some of the leading technologies in optics, including digital edgers, CNC edging machines, and a precision CNC prescription generator. Rx-Safety is one of the top ten facilities in the country for generating prescription wrap-around lenses.
From 1916 to 2000, the company made optical lenses for the military, semi-finished lenses for optical labs to make into prescription glasses, and sunglass lenses and specialty bifocal lenses.
With the creation of Phillips Safety products in 2001, the company's marketing focus changed. They moved out of the optical manufacturing business and entered the occupational safety market business, serving clients in the laser, x-ray, glassblowing and other safety markets. In 2003, Rx-Safety was established as a division of Phillips Safety. The Rx-Safety distributes (both wholesale and retail) prescription safety glasses for the military and other safety markets.
President Robert Phillips has been in the optical manufacturing business since 1968. Vice President Ryan Phillips is a graduate of Monmouth University and he has worked in the optical industry since 1996. Sales Manager Bill Brown has more than 20 years of experience in safety sales. Lab Manager Edward Beltre has worked in the optical lab business since 1970.
