PIANO MANUFACTURER INFORMATION: SCHIMMEL  
 
 
Schimmel : Piano Manufacturers Information
 
In 1885, Wilhelm Schimmel founded the company in a suburb of Leipzig.
Schimmel Has a Long Tradition
On May 2, 1885, Wilhelm Schimmel founded the company in a suburb of Leipzig. His being honored with titles of purveyor to royal houses, as well as numerous awards at world expositions and fairs, testify to the quality of his instruments. Down to this day, Schimmel continues to cultivate the fine art and craft of piano manufacturing.
Creativity and Initiative
In 1927, the management of the company passed on to the second generation, Wilhelm Arno Schimmel. He relocated the production to Brunswick (Braunschweig), led the family business through difficult years and proved an inspiration to the piano industry, leaving his imprint on an entire epoch of piano designing and opening up new paths with his modern designs.

No. 1 Worldwide
Since 1961, the company has been under the management of the third generation, Nikolaus Wilhelm Schimmel. Under his leadership, Schimmel advanced to become Germany's No. 1 resident family-owned and -operated piano manufacturer, one of the few companies still in the hands of direct descendents of the original founder for over a century. Today Schimmel continues to rank as one of the world's top brands in the piano industry.
The Legacy of Craftsmanship
At the beginning of the Third Millenium Hannes M. Schimmel-Vogel has joined the Schimmel Management in order to follow Nikolaus W. Schimmel, grandson of the founder, who presently heads the company. Along with Gabriela M. Schimmel and assisted by an exceptional team of staff members the fourth generation will continue to parlay the legacy of craftsmanship and artistry associated with this company since 1885.

Progress Doesn't Just Happen
A prerequitite for progress in piano manufacturing is that the company in question is familiar with its tradition and secrets. With Schimmel, this is the case. Whether sound-producing portions, or keyboard-and-action assemblies, whether woodworking or design, whether research or development, we at Schimmel know how unite all these areas to create a harmonious symbiosis, as eloquently testified to by our instruments. This is something you can hear, feel, see and experience.
There's No Substitute for the Traditional Piano
Digital technology and electronics will not replace the quality traditional piano in the 21st century, because fine artistry and craftsmanship are things of lasting value. Of this, there's not the slightest doubt in our minds. Which is why we at Schimmel long ago decided to concentrate our efforts exclusively on the manufacturing of traditional pianos.
