About Us

A little background information about Harvy Surgical Supply Corporation.
Home » About
Click to enlarge Harvy Surgical Supply Corporation is a fifth generation family owned business that has grown over the past 107 years to be the largest manufacturer of walking canes in North America . Our factory is located in Flushing , NY and we bend thousands of walking canes every day.

It all started with Abraham Levy who was a silversmith in London , England where he catered to royalty. He would take up to one week or more to hand craft each specially ordered cane.

He had one son Harry who was six months old when they came to America in 1882. Harry Levy followed his father's footsteps and began making umbrella handles for ten cents each. He soon found that by making the umbrella handles 30” longer he could sell them as canes for forty cents each. He needed the extra money to feed his eight children.

Five of Harry's sons guided the business through the depression years, and into the industrial age. They changed the name from Harry Levy Co. in 1964 to Harvy Surgical Supply by taking the HAR from Harry and the VY from Levy, keeping intact the firm foundation the Levy men had formed in generations past. Harry's sons later added a full line of medical products including crutches, walkers, wheelchairs and patient aids.

Harry Levy had one daughter and today it is her son, Harvey Murtha, who leads the fourth generation. Harvey has added designer canes to the line and imported specialty canes from Europe and around the world. Today, Harvy Surgical Supply Corp. is known for its quality products, excellent customer service and prompt fulfillment. As a manufacturer we are very responsive to our customers' needs and are fortunate to have a very loyal following.

We've come a long way and helped a lot of patients through our many distributors.
Everyone knows that “you can lean on us”.
