Joachim and his wife purchased the company and brought the business back into the family to proudly carry on the traditions of servicing the music products industry. They have also expanded their business to include products for other industries as well as their private label products such as musical instrument cases, which harken back to the early beginnings of the company. When talking to Joachim that the music industry is more than a job, it’s a passion that is in his blood!
