We observe and distill trends, source and design product, and distribute via retail partners, worldwide. Our designers, sourcing teams, inspectors, logisticians, and analysts are based in Randa offices in 11 countries across 5 continents. We are global and much more. We are aware, responsive, adaptive, and growing. Just as designers and streetwear in Milan or New York or Johannesburg or Melbourne or Mexico City influence what people wear in Milwaukee and Dallas and Little Rock, Randa refines and harnesses the power of our expertise, creativity, information, and resources to bring our partners — The World.
At Randa, we are fully vested in the success of the whole as much as we cultivate the accomplishment of the individual. In the whole, our portfolio of 75 lifestyle brands is the successful marriage of a carefully considered brand matrix to a dynamic spectrum of all major lifestyles reaching across all demographics. From highly penetrated brands to emerging designers, from young to mature consumers, from affordable to luxury pricepoints, from active to relaxed products, ours is a balanced portfolio far-reaching in its scope and diversity. As for the individual, each design consummately aligns with our brand partner’s DNA; every product imbued with the brand’s voice. Laser-focused attention, innovative merchandising, dedicated sales teams, and brand ambassadors champion the brand’s message.
Founded in 1910, Randa has more than 100 years of institutional knowledge and continual transformation which we leverage to create success for our partners and ourselves throughout changing global economies, shifting channels of distribution, new materials innovation, and speed-to-market. From producing Purple Hearts during World War I and selling ties from a pushcart on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, each year our products and processes get steadily better, offer greater value, and adapt to current and local needs and desires.
Each year Randa reaches further, gets stronger and moves faster.
The Randa supply chain is global and end-to-end. From concept to consumer Randa has eyes, hands and minds on every touchpoint. From onsite 3-D sample making to in-store selling, quality assurance and in-house customs brokerage, Randa adds value at each step of the journey. It is Randa’s culture and competency to re-evaluate, reformulate and optimize every product, brand and process to flawlessly assure that our customers can buy precisely what they want, whenever and wherever they choose.
Randa sales managers meet with our retail partners’ buying and planning teams determining quantity, distribution and delivery dates for product launches. Meanwhile our forecasting managers in Chicago, New York, London, and Shanghai analyze daily and weekly sell-thru, and schedule production, receipt, distribution, and delivery.
Award-winning in-house packaging and component designers create display concepts, elements, markings, and related marketing tools which seduce customers at the point-of-purchase decision. Stop, touch, smile, and buy – you can’t pass by a Randa product or display without experiencing an emotional response.
Whether it is carry-on luggage or a suitcase handle, a wallet or an ice scraper, whichever step of the journey, every product is produced under supervision of Randa quality assurance inspectors monitoring the progress, quality and social compliance of the entire process.
Production is a global symphony of sorts: A tie is finished or a buckle manufactured in Hangzhou, China. A belt strap cut and finished in Central America, from hides purchased in Europe by our sourcing managers, is assembled by Randa’s factory in Guatemala City. All of it finely orchestrated to complete the manufacturing journey in the most time-efficient manner with high-quality results.
Randa Accessories has significant strategic and financial investments in Tata, the largest belt manufacturer in the Western Hemisphere. This investment in manufacturing provides Randa customers with a complete end-to-end supply chain for men’s leather goods, providing increased speed-to-market, unique access to Mexican, Central and South American tanneries and customers, and reduces supply chain risk.
Tata was founded in 1985 to export Guatemalan handcrafted leather belts, bags and other small leather goods to the United States. Tata has evolved into a major manufacturer of high quality dress and casual belts. With modern, efficient, and state-of-the-art Italian equipment, Tata not only produces exceptional high quality goods, but does so in large volume, with rapid deliveries, from a convenient location, and with little, or no, customs duties. Tata customers include a powerful portfolio of major retailers, importers, and global brands.
Once production is completed, an appropriate Randa office in places like Xiamen China, Guatemala and Chicago complete forms and documentation for transit and for our in-house customs brokerage to process. Ultimately one of our global logistics centers in New Orleans, Reno, Taunton, Toronto, Melbourne, Glenrothes, Johannesburg, or Mexico City, inspect the products once again and move them down high speed conveyor systems to be packed, weighed and shipped that same day to their final destination.
From product creation to product consumption - factory to workplace and store to closet - Randa is committed to great global citizenship, to providing positive impact for people, the environment and our communities. We meet the needs of today without compromising the needs of tomorrow. We are pledged to use safe materials, maintain and improve safe working conditions, and to support human rights. We are dedicated to reduce our consumption of essential resources including energy and water. And it’s working. Our sustainability initiatives have saved 1 million kilowatt hours of energy, our water conservation 1 million gallons of fresh water, per year, and our recycling program has saved more than 75,000 trees. Significantly, our newest facility is over 500,000 square feet of LEED Gold certified distribution space.
