    Right next door to Hilco's eyewear repair place. Maybe they're part of the same company?

    Andrew Weiss: "Right next door to Hilco's eyewear repair place. Maybe they're part of the same company?"

    They are distinct companies. Only geographical coincidence. The frame industry in the US evolved in the MA - RI area and Universal-Univis and Hilco are among the very few survivors. The Portuguese immigrants established the jewelry business there and frames evolved from that.

    Universal-Univis now a fraction of their combined size decades ago. Hilco has grown and holds a strong position in their niche.

    Anyone know if they're still operating? Their webpage is a do-it-yourself graveyard now and looks like it hasn't been updated in a decade; the 1800 number they have listed gets me a driving directions service. Was looking into them for someone because apparently they supplied (or just made) the glasses on the show "Heroes."
