Expansion and Relocation
Larger premises were taken on in London and during this time organ restoration started in earnest, in parallel with supplying cardboard music. Today the business is based in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, housed in a large factory with complete workshop facilities for all aspects of organ restoration, conservation and building. Perforated cardboard and paper music is still a large part of the business. Three members of the team are dedicated to organ restoration, two for music preparation and cutting as well as an administration post. Only the most highly skilled and sympathetic people are employed, their backgrounds cover a variety of skills including; organ building, musicianship, cabinet making, engineering and design.
The acquisition of assets from H. Voigt Orgelbau (Est. 1832), Frankfurt were made in 2012, which included much of the machinery, music patterns and archives of A. Ruth & Sohn (Est. 1841), Waldkirch. The association with the firms of Chiappa Ltd, London and the Voigt family continue to this day.
