“I have developed the new Kohler & Campbell Millennium Pianos
with the best of my ability.
Therefore, these pianos represent the latest performance piano technology.”
Charles Kohler and John Calvin Campbell joined forces in
New York in 1896 to create the Kohler & Campbell Industries, Inc.
Campbell was a machinist who invented several wood and iron making machines and later took up piano making.
He partnered with Charles Kohler for only 18 years,
until the time of his unexpected death in 1908.
John Campbell has been credited with pioneering many manufacturing techniques
that instantly created more value for the dollar in Kohler & Campbell pianos.
This was and is the cornerstone of Kohler & Campbell pianos…the best value for the dollar.
At the age of 20, Charles Kohler embarked on a piano-making career.
Considered a genius as a factory organizer and businessman,
he was the perfect complement to Campbell.
Together they built one of America’s largest piano companies.
As a testament to the quality, it is said that some of their largest customers were piano manufacturers
of note that carried Kohler & Campbell pianos in their retail establishments.
Today, the tradition continues and Kohler & Campbell pianos are sold in many of America’s finest retail establishments.
