Good quality requires good manufacturing conditions. The W.Hoffmann instruments of the Tradition series are manufactured completely in the Czech Republic. C. Bechstein Europe’s piano-makers even voice the hammerheads by hand.
Together, C. Bechstein Europe and C. Bechstein Germany, the parent company, form Europe’s main piano-making group. The manufacturing structures are characterized by a high degree of in-house production that even includes the manufacturing of the hammerheads by the German facility. The Czech production site boasts a stunning synthesis between craftsmanship and intelligently used CNC technology. After an investment of more than15 million there, coupled with the integral refurbishment of the buildings, the restructuring performed in 2015/2016, the availability of modern technology and a workforce of 150, C. Bechstein Europe’s production site boasts potential that is radically different from the modest possibilities of most other manufacturers, who merely assemble third-party parts or perform mass production after relocating to Asia.
