In 1853, German immigrant Henry E. Steinway founded Steinway & Sons in New York City with the goal of building the best piano possible. In pursuing his goal, he began one of the great American success stories. Though much has changed since then, the Steinway factory still keeps true to the original and most important fundamental principles established more than a century and a half ago. Steinway pianos continue to be handcrafted by generation-old techniques with pride in New York City.
