British Manufactured Eyewear

Established in 1946, Optoplast celebrates seven decades in the optical industry. Over the years Optoplast has been at the forefront of innovation and design, from the invention of the PIMO machine in 1951 which brought a new level of precision to the optical industry, to today using latest CAD technology and 3D prototyping to push every design boundary.

In 2013 Optoplast acquired Andrew Actman (forming Optoplast Actman Eyewear Co Ltd) the company continues Optoplast's tradition of exacting standards by monitoring all of its production using its Liverpool based UKAS accredited testing laboratory. Handed down through three generations, the company remains a family run business to this day, priding itself on inspirational designs, attention to every detail and commitment to the highest quality.

In 2013, with over 65 years of industry experience, we began our most exciting venture to date. To re-create British manufacturing for optical frames and sunglasses with the introduction of Contract Manufacturing "Made in Britain".

The latest precision machines, highly trained staff and years of industry experience make it possible for us to produce beautiful, quality product at our own factory in Liverpool, England.

We are proud of our heritage and the fact we design, manufacture and test every frame on our own premises, a unique proposition that has allowed us to go back to our roots and bring eyewear manufacturing back to Britain.
