Piano Manufacturers

The location of a corporate office does not explain where a piano was manufactured. For example, Yamaha Pianos produced for the U.S. market have been manufactured in 4 locations: Hamamatsu, Japan; Thomaston, Georgia; South Haven, Michigan; and Jakarta, Indonesia. Pearl River uses parts manufactured in Germany and other locations. Some U.S. manufacturers have had plants for certain parts in Mexico. The following are current manufacturers, producing many brand names not listed, even brand names whose original manufacturers have ceased to exist. Also, corporate changes include constant ownership changes. For example, Baldwin is a division of Gibson, who also makes guitars, drums, dobros, banjos, and mandolins. Hamilton and D.H. Baldwin are "retired" lines of Baldwin/Gibson. With the globalization of the world economy, U.S. manufacturers found it impossible to build pianos in the United States because of the high labor costs. Due to the high man-hours involved in producing these pianos, many moved their production overseas.
