It is in 1980 when Edmond Maitre, founder of the company, decided to create his own eyewear.
At that time, he set up the basis of Optisun know-how in his garage. In 1985, the company was born, and numbered 10 employees.
In 1990, his son, Olivier, joined the company.
He quickly understood that modernising the production equipment was necessary to sustain the eyewear industry and French know-how, dear to his heart. This is when the company made its own numerical control machines to modernize the factory, provide new technics and production processes.
Today the Optisun company employs around 60 people and is known in the eyewear industry thanks to its know-how and its expertise.
