A Summarized History of Ortopédicos San Andrés
In 1957, two well diggers, José Sanchez and Manuel Perez, decided to change their profession and began to manufacture orthopedic chairs. Thus, Casa San Andres was finally created. Its first manufacturing facility was a small storehouse situated at San Andres neighborhood, Province of Buenos Aires.
When Jose Sanchez retired on account of an illness, Manuel Perez and Aida Margarita Sanchez (currently, Aida Margarita Sanchez Perez) went on transacting firm’s business. At the beginning, production was focused on manufacturing wheelchairs that could be changed to a litter. Deliveries were usually made in a Gilera motorcycle containing a coupled cart with a space available for only one wheelchair.
When deliveries were made in the city of Rosario, a Ford “A” station wagon was often used. For being able to arrive at Rosario, trips started at 03:00AM and ended at noon. Many years afterwards, Casa San Andres ‘s name was changed to Ortopedicos San Andres. During the first years, wheelchairs, canes and strollers were manufactured in craftsmanship terms and very few orthopedic elements were manufactured per month. In 1974, Casa San Andres moved about 7 streets from the original storehouse because the growing demand of orthopedic items required larger manufacturing facilities.
Nowadays, manufacturing is made on a series basis. The incorporation of newest technologies has resulted in a production exceeding 2.000 items / month.
