SWOT ANALYSIS ON Steinway & Sons - November 30th, 2010

Steinway & Sons, also known as Steinway, (pronounced /ˈstaɪnweɪ/ ( listen)) is an American and German manufacturer of handmade[4] pianos, founded in 1853 in New York City, by German immigrant Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg (later Henry E. Steinway).[5] The company's growth led to the opening of a factory and employee village in what is now Astoria, Queens in New York City,[6] followed by a second factory in Hamburg, Germany, in 1880.[7] Its early success has been credited both to the quality of its instruments and its effective marketing, including the company's introduction of Steinway Halls (in German: Steinway-Häuser).

Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg's dedication was: "To build the best piano possible".[9] He established at his company three basic principles: "Build to a standard, not a price", "Make no compromise in quality", and "Strive always to improve the instrument".[10] Research and inventions by the company have earned it so far around 130 patents, a greater number than any other piano company.
