Optrafair in the frame for Galaxy Optical New collections, a lens Portal and a charity initiative to be launched at the Birmingham show

Galaxy Optical will be launching its Dunlop, Kangol and Lipsy London optical ranges on stand D42 at Optrafair, along with its latest range of Dunlop sunglasses.

The company will also celebrate the launch of a charity initiative plus its development of a new lens Portal for independent practices.

Galaxy Optical is very proud to be supporting the Pink Ribbon Foundation with its new range of exclusive ophthalmic frames for the breast cancer charity.

The Pink Ribbon Foundation collection is designed to appeal to every woman. It boasts clean lines and a variety of shapes to suit all faces, so that women can feel confident in finding the right frames to team with any outfit.

Successful sports brand Dunlop will launch a new fashion-led ophthalmic sports range at the show. The new frames feature high quality, double injection rubberised temples, striking colour combinations and eye sizes ranging from standard to an extra large fit.

The latest Dunlop sunglasses will also feature on the stand. They are manufactured using the best quality 0.6mm Ultra Stainless Steel, which is rubberised to make it feel soft to the touch. The Polarized mirrored lenses have been added to ensure the sunglasses are ideal for a variety of sports.

Galaxy Optical’s new special edition Kangol optical range marks the 80th anniversary of the popular British clothing and accessories brand. The ophthalmic frames of the 80th Anniversary Kangol collection have a high-fashion-meets-retro-cool theme and are offered in a mix of bicolour metals and rich coloured acetates.

The Lipsy London collection celebrates the youthful fashion brand’s distinctive style, with recognisable Lipsy patterns and high-quality materials creating a must have look in eyewear.

At Optrafair, Galaxy Optical will also launch its new lens Portal, which has been designed to enable independents to easily access its state-of-the-art British glazing facilities in a very simple, user- friendly and transparent way.

To celebrate the creation of the new Portal, the company has a special show offer of a 15% discount on all completed packages when a customer chooses its frame and lens packages.

As part of its lenses development, Galaxy Optical has recently recruited Lee Woodward as its new Head of Lens Sales. Well-known in optics, he brings with him a wealth of experience in understanding what the independent sector’s needs are.

Explaining the lens attractions on the stand, Sergio Weingarten, Galaxy Optical’s International Operations Director, said: “As one of the largest independent labs in the UK, with over 20 years of experience working at the highest levels, we can offer our customers outstanding service, pricing, tracking and quality, which few of our competitors are placed to do.”

Mr Weingarten explained: “We are extremely proud of our IT-enabled, state-of-the-art UK lab, in particular, our in-house developed quality control systems, which have essentially eradicated the age-old problem of inspection fatigue.”

He added: “The service that we provide to customers is something that they tell us puts us well ahead of our competitors. There are no surprises, we have transparent pricing, we deliver as promised and the quality of the finished product makes new customers quickly realise that it was a sound decision to have engaged with us, both on a commercial and relationship basis.”

Highlighting why Galaxy Optical chose to exhibit at the show, Mr Weingarten said: “This is a major UK show and a special year for Optrafair with its 40th anniversary so we wanted to be there to showcase what we can offer.”

“We are very excited about our new partnership with the Pink Ribbon Foundation and the optical range to support this,” he concluded.
