3 Generations Of Family Operated Business
Salvatore Cracchiolo Salvatore, the father of the Founder and CEO of Consolidated-Medical and Surgical Supply Corporation, Mr. Richard Crana, was born in Palermo, Sicily. He emigrated to the United Sates at the turn of the Twentieth Century as a Master 'Ciabattino' Cobbler. He completed several years of an extensive apprentiship in an Italian Master Craftsman Guilld, as was the custom. He then pioneered the creation of the first Orthotics under the guidance of Orthopedic Specialists of the day. As a Master Craftsman, Mr. Cracchiolo served as a source of inspiration and impetus for his son to continue on, taking the craft of his esteemed father into the wider modern field of prothestics and orthotics, which is known as Consolidated Medical and Surgical Supply, a leader in the field for over 40 years.
