The company was founded in 1885 in Leipzig by Wilhelm Schimmel. This company is especially popular for its high quality concert grand pianos. In August 2009, the biggest piano maker in Germany became insolvent and was protected from its creditors in a manner similar to "chapter 11" in the USA. In April 2010, after the firm was financially restructured, it became solvent and healthy again and has been released from its protected state by the German authorities. The company is now fully owned by the Schimmel family.
