History of the piano brandKawai
Koichi Kawai, founder of Kawai, was born in Japan in 1886 in Hamamatsu. In 1927 he founded the Kawai research laboratory, where with the help of 7 researchers, he began the manufacture of high quality pianos.
In 1929, the company already at the origin of several upright pianos and grand pianos, is renamed "Manufacture of musical instruments Kawai". The exceptional mechanics of the brand met with tremendous success in Japan, and innovations followed one another.
When Koichi Kawai died, his son Shigaru Kawai took over the company. Innovative and ingenious, Shigeru creates a link between handmade technique and modern technology.
In 1989, his son, Hirotaka, became president. Under his leadership, Kawai opened a $10 million investment program to modernize manufacturing processes. Many factories are located around the world, and the family tradition Kawai continues in this way.
