Maker Shuron

Maker Details Possible maker information below: Shuron has been an optical manufacturer since 1865. Shuron has survived almost 140 years within three centuries and two millenniums by producing quality, fashionable products that remain in style and demand. Shuron serves its new customers today, just like it was the primary source of optical products and machinery for independent and new wholesale laboratories in the 1920's, proud to have served the US Army troops in WWII by providing mobile optical units, and proud to have served the millions upon millions (ie, The Ronwinne-Rimway Frame had its 7,000,000th sale on September 3, 1946, while the Ronsir had its 16,000,000th sale on August 6, 1971) of previously satisfied customers.
