Background and history of Bausch and Lomb
Bausch and Lomb was established in 1853 by John Bausch and is one of the oldest American companies still operating. Bausch opened an optical shop in Rochester, New York, to sell microscopes, magnifiers, and eyeglasses that he imported from Europe. Bausch needed some money and borrowed sixty dollars from his friend Henry Lomb. He promised him that if the business grew and he ever needed a partner Lomb would be the one. The rest is as we say - history. The business grew and Bausch & Lomb was formed.
The company started to flourish when John Bausch discovered Vulcanite Rubber. The material could be used to manufacture eye glass frames that were both cheaper and more durable than other frames. Naturally they were a big hit. The success made Bausch and Lomb start working with optical products that required high level precision manufacturing. More than a century later Bausch and Lomb is one of the leading manufacturers of eye health products.
