Tasco was founded in 1954 by George Rosenfeld and was first named “Tanross Supply Company.” Tasco began as a hardware and fishing tackle supplier but the “Tasco” name was adopted as the business expanded into binoculars and eyepieces. Today, Tasco offers telescopes and other optics such as spotting scopes, rangefinders, and binoculars as well as red dots, rifle sights, and accessories.
