Historical Significance: Josef Eschenbach registered his business in Nuremberg as a wholesaler of optical products and precision drawing instruments in 1914. Rudolph Eschenbach, Josef's son, assumed all business responsibilities, and took direction of the company in 1923 for the next 4 decades. Initially it made binoculars and optical instruments but expanded into spectacle lenses, magnifiers, low vision aids and spectacle frames in the second half of the 20thC. It introduced the titanflex range of frames in 1988.
