Foresight Optical Ltd. was founded by James Wu in September 1986. Since then, the company has focused on providing superior quality-cost effective Polycarbonate Safety & Sun Lens Acrylic Reading Lens and Acrylic Sun Lens products. Daily production capacity currently runs at 120,000+ pairs. Our products are primarily aimed at the Japanese, USA, Hong Kong, European and most Far East countries. We obtained ISO9001 certification in 2008.

We have the capability to supply full plastic and polycarbonate eyewear products, for both the sports and sun wear markets.

Foresight Optical has a long term policy of reinvesting profits back into the company to finance new product development and improved production capabilities ,with a view to reducing overall costs and strengthening price competitiveness.

Company Mission Statement
"To supply products to our customer at a price and quality level that maintains and ultimately improves their competitive edge in the marketplace.
Based on a firm commitment to customer support and a guarantee, to be at all times, fully accountable for our actions."

 

Manufacturing Capability
To maintain price competitiveness on high vol low cost items, Foresight Optical made a  decision 4 years ago to move part of it's production to Mainland China; to take advantage of the lower cost structure available there. A new factory was built in Xiamen (east coast of Mainland China) and production commenced in early 1999.

The Taiwan factory remains responsible for 
-New Product Development
-Production of Medium to High End Products, (less price sensitive)
-Customer Proprietary Design (when maximum confidentiality is required)
-Sales and Marketing
 (will continue to be primarily based in Taiwan, although some functions may move to China if and  when required)
