... truly an American Made Hero Company!
Steinway & Sons was founded in 1853 by German immigrant Henry Engelhard Steinway in a Manhattan loft on Varick Street.
Henry was a master cabinet maker who built his first piano in the kitchen of his Seesen, Germany home. By the time Henry
established Steinway & Sons, he had built 482 pianos. The first piano produced by the company, number 483, was sold to a
New York family for $500. It is now displayed at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
That which distinguishes Steinway pianos, more than all else, is summed in our dedication to a single ideal: Make the
finest pianos in the world. Since the firm was founded in 1853 that ideal and its three basic principles, as stated by
our founder Henry E. Steinway, have guided us: 1 -- "Build to a standard, not a price." // 2 -- "Make no compromise in
quality." // 3 -- "Strive always to improve the instrument."
Today, Steinway & Sons crafts approximately 5,000 pianos a year worldwide. Over 1300 prominent concert artists and ensembles across the world bear the title Steinway Artist. No artist or ensemble is a paid endorser of the piano. Each Steinway Artist personally owns a Steinway and has chosen to perform on the Steinway piano professionally. In North America, artists select their Steinway for concert performances from the company's unique "piano bank," an inventory of more than 300 pianos valued at over $15 million.
"Not only the wealth, but the independence and security of a country, appear
to be materially connected with the prosperity of manufacturers. Every nation ... ought to endeavor to possess within
itself all the essentials of a national supply. They comprise the means of subsistence, habitation, clothing and
defense ... The expediency of encouraging manufactures in the United States, which was not long since deemed very
questionable, appears at this time to be pretty generally admitted."

Patriotism, Jobs Primary Motivations for 'Buying American'
PRINCETON, NJ -- Forty-five percent of Americans say they recently made a special effort to buy products made in the United States. When asked why,
these shoppers mainly cited patriotic or altruistic goals related to the national economy, including creating and keeping jobs in the U.S., rather than
product-specific considerations such as quality, safety, or cost.
