We all have to start somewhere. Our somewhere began in 1986, with Ron and leaded eyewear.
In 1986, Ronald Parasmo, a licensed optician in the state of Florida, was approached with an unusual request to repair leaded eyewear. The glasses belonged to a doctor and were used as protection against ionizing radiation. Ron quickly found the required materials to fix the eyewear and the gentleman who sent Ron the eyewear was so impressed with the quality of his work that he began referring additional jobs.
As repairs on lead glasses grew rapidly, Ron launched his own line of radiation protective eyewear as a primary focus in 1991. In 1997, Protech developed one of the most popular gloves on the market today; the 510k approved ProGuard radiation reducing gloves for fluoroscopic procedures.
In the early 2000s, with the success of gloves and eyewear inspiring further growth, Protech set out on a mission to become the one-stop-shop for radiation protection apparel by introducing its own line of high quality, light weight aprons. Through the efforts of many great employees, the apron business took root and Protech completed its transition from market disruptor to a mature, full-scale radiation apparel manufacturer.
In 2014, Ron's son Jarrod joined Protech's team to modernize and revitalize the business with the introduction of new products and technology platforms. Fast-forward to today, Protech is now one of the most recognized manufacturers of radiation safety products in the world; known for its quality and service.
