Interesting facts about Hohner:
The Hohner company was founded in 1857 by Matthias Hohner. The beginning of this traditional company began in the Hohner family home. In the beginning the first harmonicas were handmade here. Who would have thought at that time that the size of the company would exceed 5000 employees and that the produced instruments would be shipped worldwide. Matthias Hohner died in 1903. The heirs of Matthias Hohner started with the production of harmonicas.
In 1923 the accordion production in Trossingen was 30000 pieces per year. In this period about 1200 different accordion models were produced. In the 50s the Hohner team was expanded by Venanzino Morino and later by Giovanni Gola. They brought the quality of the hand pull instruments to a new level. In the 50s the Hohner Melodica, the Hohner Pianet and the Hohner Organetta were developed. At the end of the 70s Hohner started the successful production of the home organs, which ran until the end of the 80s. At the end of the 80's the Hohner family withdrew from the company and an investor took over the management of the company. In 1997 a Taiwanese manufacturer "KHS Musical Instruments" took over the majority of shares in the company.
