Koenig

The Koenig company from the Alsace-Lorraine is founded by Jean- Georges Koenig (1920-1992), who worked first as an apprentice at the Roethinger firm. He started his own company in 1945. He became famous with the building of the organ at Sarre-Union according to the guidelines of Dom Bédos dating to 1766. Following this reconstruction, the firm built almost exclusively organs with suspended mechanics. In 1968, his son Yves Koenig (*1950) joined the company and took over the company in 1983. In 2008, Julien Marchal (*1990) joined the company as an apprentice. In 2016, he became head of the company.
