Frank Calandra, Inc was formed in 1922 by Frank Calandra Sr and Mary Calandra, its two common shareholders. The primary purpose of the proprietorship was to buy and sell scrap to the Pittsburgh area steel producers. Frank Calandra, Inc evolved over the years into mining distribution to the local coal mines near Cresson Pa. Rail products were its primary focus until 1965.
