MONTREAL — Revision, a maker of protective equipment for military and tactical forces, has sold its eyewear business to ASGARD Partners & Co., a private investment firm based in New York.

“This divestiture supports our strategy to sharpen our portfolio and fund expanded capabilities and growth initiatives around enhanced warfighter survivability and lethality,” said Revision CEO, Jonathan Blanshay.

He added: “Revision eyewear has become the world-wide leader in military eye protection, and is a valuable and recognized industry brand.
