Andover Organ Company
Founded in 1948, as the result of the Organ Reform Movement, Andover has played a pivotal role in the preservation of 19th Century American organs and in the construction of historically informed new instruments which inspire players and listeners.
In 1959 Andover built one of the first new tracker organs by a US firm since the 1930s. In 1964 we carried out the world's first re-trackerization of an electrified tracker organ. Over our 67 year history, we have become experts in the restoration of organs by many builders. We have rebuilt or restored over 500 organs and built 118 new instruments. Examples of our work can be found throughout the United States.
Along with building, rebuilding and restorations, we maintain over 300 organs throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. We have a reputation for quality work and meticulous craftsmanship. Our 17 employees have collectively a total of over 400 years of organbuilding experience; half of them are church musicians.
Andover belongs to International Society of Organbuilders (ISO), the Associated Pipe Organ Builders of America (APOBA) and has employees who belong to the American Institute of Organbuilders (AIO) and the Organ Historical Society (OHS).
