The company, founded in 2000, employs seven people and is established in Alsace. It specialises in building, restoring and maintaining pipe organs and in restoring harmoniums.

Since its creation, it has been entrusted with restoring or rebuilding instruments in different and highly distinctive styles, some of which are listed as historical monuments.

It has thus been able to garner expertise in very specific fields or areas of rediscovery (free reed stops, pneumatic action).

Among their new instrument designs, the construction of an organ with a classic French aesthetic for St Paul’s church in Mulhouse (68) received the Grand Prix des Métiers d'Art d'Alsace craftsmanship award in 2008.

Its recent work illustrates its ability to adapt to the aesthetic and technical diversity of the organ: reconstruction of the organ of Joseph Callinet (1837-3 keyboards, 32 stops) of the Church of Ste Marie de Mullhouse (68); restoration of the Heinrich Koulen organ (1892-2 keyboards, 27 stops pneumatic traction) of the Church of St Jean Baptiste de Buhl (68); Lifting of the Walcker organ (1897-3 keyboards, 75 stops) of the reformed church of St Paul of Strasbourg (67).).

It has an established and institutional clientele.
