The companys success is due to their unsurpassed quality, and ability to produce custom made actions for the individual customer. Renner is a typical example of the German precision industry as it is acknowledged throughout the world. The development of the pianoforte to its present form has been decisively related to the development of the hammer mechanism, invented in 1709 by Italian Harpsichord maker Bartolomeo Cristofori. The new action made it possible for the instrument to play both soft and loud (in Italian “piano” means “soft” and “forte” means “strong”), hence the name pianoforte. While improvements were always being made to the action mechanism, a half century passed before the pianoforte was able to overcome the initial objections of such influential figures as Johann Sebastian Bach, and prevail over the harpsichord and clavichord. The rise of Germany to an industrial power at the end of the 19th century brought its piano-makers to a new level of status and importance. The progressive companies achieved great advances. Firms such as Ibach, Bosendorfer, Schiedmayer, and lrmler, or “newcomers” such as Bechstein and BlÃ¼thner exploited the advantages of technological developments. Louis Renner began on a very modest level with the production of the piano mechanism in October of 1882. Hand-crafted production was at the heart of the companys beginnings. The history of Renner is closely related to that of the German piano industry and their increasing demands for more specialized industrial production methods. When the Renner company moved into a new factory building in 1902 there were 35 employees. By 1911 there were 100 employees and a new wing had to be added to the factory. Gradually, more and more machines found their way into the production process. Skilled craftsmanship was reserved for the important production stages, especially the comprehensive quality controls without which a superior product cannot be produced. The number of aemployees rose to 175 by the First World War. More labor-saving methods were developed as new machinery was introduced. Upright and grand piano mechanism manufacturing were now brought together under one roof.
