Seiler grand pianos

Seiler, one of the most respected and oldest piano brands, was founded in Europe and began its operations in 1849 in Liegnitz (now Legnica), then part of German Prussia. The founder, Edward Seiler, established the Pianoforte-Fabrik company, which quickly became a leading piano manufacturer in Eastern Europe, despite not always favorable political conditions. The company's development was steady, and the distribution of Seiler pianos gradually expanded.

In 1875, the company's management was taken over by Edward's son, Johannes Seiler, and later his son, Edward's grandson - Anton Seiler, in 1923. After the end of World War II, when Legnica became part of Poland, the Seiler factory was nationalized, and the Seiler family had to leave the country. The reactivation of piano production by Steffan Seiler, Edward's great-grandson, took place in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, after the war. However, the operation in Denmark was short-lived and lasted from about 1951 to 1962, when the company's headquarters were moved to Kitzingen in Germany, where the main office is currently located. Nevertheless, currently, most of the piano production takes place outside of Germany. In 2008, Seiler was acquired by Samick, one of the leading musical instrument manufacturing companies in the world, resulting in most of the production moving to Indonesia.

This is a brief overview of the 170-year history of the Seiler brand. If you are interested in more details and the course of events over the years – check here.

Eduard and Johannes Seiler
