The Page Organ Company was a producer of theater pipe organs, located in Lima, Ohio.[1]

The Page Company started very small, with a home-built organ in 1922. However, the company experienced much growth over the following decade, with a steady demand for theatre organs.[2]

The company experienced a decline in the early 1930s with the introduction of sound films, coupled with the onset of the Depression. The company was sold to an employee named Ellsworth Beilharz in 1930, who initially assembled instruments from components purchased from the defunct Page Company.[3]

In 1984, Beilharz sold the company to two employees, who remain in business under the name Lima Pipe Organ Company, Inc.
