ClearVision Optical Receives Regional Economic Development Council Award





(Press Release)
HAUPPAUGE, NY – Eyewear designer and distributor ClearVision Optical recently received a Regional Economic Development Council Award from the New York State Department of Labor to support the company’s training and process improvement efforts.

Made on behalf of the Governor’s Regional Economic Development Councils (REDCs) and Consolidated Funding Application (CFA), these awards were given in 10 regional councils in New York State. ClearVision is one of 121 Long Island projects to receive funding. Approximately $98.3 million in funding was awarded to Long Island projects.

Working in partnership with Stony Brook University (SBU), ClearVision applied for the grant as a means to further extend employee skills in areas that would help contribute to its profitability and success.

“The grant allows us to continue to further the development of talent not only in our company, but on Long Island,” says Jennifer Trakhtenberg, ClearVision’s senior talent leader. “It provides us with another way to reinforce our continued efforts to innovate not only in product design, but in areas of customer service and satisfaction. At a time when more and more jobs are becoming automated or streamlined, we are investing in our people to help them develop marketable skills for meaningful careers.”

As part of the grant application, ClearVision presented its needs for continued enrichment in the areas of advanced product development, technology, leadership and change management. Initiatives include:
Extensive training for product developers in rapid prototyping and designing of eyewear


Extensive business writing and leadership coursework, with an emphasis on change management, to help communicate effectively with customers, vendors and employees

Advanced Excel and process improvement coursework to increase efficiency and productivity
“In 2013, ClearVision began using 3D printing in our design and prototyping processes,” says Trakhtenberg. “Since then, we’ve fully embraced this rapidly evolving technology and expanded our 3D printing capabilities. 3D printing now plays a pivotal role in our overall design and production philosophy and has significantly improved our efficiency. This award will further assist us in enhancing these capabilities.”

In 2011, Governor Cuomo launched the REDCs and the CFA to provide each region with the tools to create and implement their own roadmap for economic prosperity and job creation. This community-based model uses local assets to drive local economic growth.
