Schulze Pollmann

Schulze Pollmann was formed in 1928 by the merger of two German piano builders that had moved to Italy. The founding partner, Paul Pollmann, worked for many years with Ibach in Barmen and with Steinway & Sons in Hamburg before opening his own piano works at Unna.

In 1923 the new factory was transferred to Turin, and at almost the same time, another renowned piano builder from Germany, Schulze of Zwickau, moved to Bolzano in northern Italy. The two companies merged in 1928 to create Schulze Pollmann, managed until 1942 by Paul Pollmann, whose son, Hans Pollmann was the technical director of the company from the 1950’s till the 1970’s. Hans had learned his craft under the personal supervision of his father before moving away to Braunschweig for a while to manage the famous Schimmel company.

In recent years, Schulze Pollmann has implemented an ambitious programme of investment and expansion, opening several new factories to satisfy the increasing demand for its upright and grand pianos.

With the skills of the craftspersons employed by the company and the use of advanced computerized machinery, capable of guaranteeing an extremely high level of precision and reliability at all stages of the production process, Schulze Pollmann is now one of Europe’s foremost piano builders.

The origins of Schulze Pollmann make it easy to understand why the company’s instruments are famed for the robustness, durability and full, mellow tones that are commonly associated with the great German tradition of piano building.

Whilst fully respecting these time-honoured characteristics, Schulze Pollmann has successfully managed to add original elements of Italian taste and design, producing a remarkable blend of tradition, technology and elegance.
