A.E. Schlueter International Pipe Organ Builders
For over 30 years, A.E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company, Inc. has been responsible for building, rebuilding, refurbishing, and maintaining the finest pipe organs all over the United States. Although there are notable specifications and imperial examples of the artistic and mechanical ingenuity of pipe organ building, the soul of organ building is found in artisans who build or re-build one-of-a-kind instruments. The true strength of this company is the talented, dedicated, professional staff.
In 1973, the company was founded by Arthur E. Schlueter, Jr. to sell and service the finest pipe organs, emphasizing quality and value. "Soli Deo Gloria" (to God alone be the glory) was incorporated in the company seal to indicated the Christian roots and principals upon which the company was founded. To provide the highest quality, the firm manufactures all of the major components and assemblies used in the building of instruments, organ additions, consoles, and organ cases.
Starting from humble beginnings, the business gradually outgrew successive temporary and rented buildings, until 1988 when the current complex was begun. Now providing nearly 18,000 square feet of space, the facilities include a modern woodworking shop, a voicing room, a drafting and engineering room, and a spacious warehouse area which houses the CNC machine, storage and erecting room. With our most recent addition we now enjoy the largest pipe organ facility in the southeastern United States. Having one of the most modern, custom-built organ building facilities, provides our staff with the space needed to serve our customers and support our sales, repair, and organ building activities. The staff includes Mr. Schlueter's son Arthur E. Schlueter, III, who serves as Vice-President of Tonal and Artistic Direction.
Today, A.E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company is responsible for the care of over 160 pipe organs, and has grown from building and rebuilding many instruments in the United States, to an international presence as we build instruments for the growing international Christian community.
Our Vice-President of International Sales and Marketing is John Green, who has been in the music business for over 40 years, and for 17 years was involved in international marketing. The son of a Methodist pastor, John was raised in the realm of church music; he played the piano at age 5, and began organ studies at 13. For many decades John has been a regular church organist, currently holding forth on the large pipe organ at Rose City Park United Methodist Church in Portland, Oregon, USA. He and his wife, Kathy, have been married for 40 years, have three grown children and three grandchildren.
