Celebrating 97 Years of Ornamental Products Tool & Supply Inc.: Honoring Tradition and Embracing the Future in Cleveland

A Tapestry of Resilience and Craftsmanship

In the heart of Cleveland, a story of resilience and craftsmanship has been unfolding since 1927. Ornamental Products Tool & Supply Inc., started by Carl and Elsie Pratt, has grown alongside the city, enduring through the Great Depression, flourishing in the manufacturing boom, and adapting through the decades. It's a tale that intertwines with the fabric of Northeast Ohio and the American dream.

For those in Northeast Ohio, Ornamental's influence is profound. From school workshops to industrial heartlands, our tools have been instrumental in shaping the region's skills and dreams. Our legacy is etched in the memories and accomplishments of generations who have used our tools to build their futures.

Celebrating Greg Pratt: A Pillar of Strength and Wisdom

As we turn the page to a new chapter, we pay homage to Greg Pratt, a Vietnam veteran whose wisdom and experience are the bedrock of Ornamental. Greg's dedication, rooted in the values passed down from his father, a WWII veteran, has been a guiding light. His vast knowledge and strong presence have been pivotal in maintaining our standards of excellence and integrity.

Greg's Legacy: A Testament to American Valor and Craftsmanship

Greg's journey is not just about tools and machinery; it's a story of American valor, resilience, and commitment. His leadership has been instrumental in upholding the quality and reputation that Ornamental is known for. As a veteran, Greg embodies the spirit of service and dedication that is at the heart of our community and our nation.

Eric Pratt III: Embracing the Future with Respect for the Past

In this significant era, Eric Pratt III, the great-great-grandson of our founders, steps in as a minority owner. His vision for Ornamental is steeped in respect for the past and enthusiasm for the future.
