Buch Organ Company is an authorized representative of R. A. Colby Organ Builders, Inc. Initially, R. A. Colby was engaged to provide some of the custom millwork needed in many organ installations, including Consoles and Pipe Facades. Other components began to be ordered and the working relationship of Buch Organs and R.A. Colby deepened.
R.A. Colby began in 1974 as an adjunct to a major Pipe Organ Builder, the firm began as a supplier of specialized electrical components to the trade under the name of Kimber-Allen, Inc. Relocation to Tennessee in 1979 saw the growth of the supply endeavors and expansion of the product line to include component construction for the organ building trade.
By 1984, the main focus of the company had become the design and construction of custom components for the pipe organ industry. As a result, the company transitioned to the present name of R.A. Colby, Inc. As the offerings of the company grew, so did acceptance by the industry. A dedicated floor space was constructed in 2001 to house a new, state of the art, large format computer controlled router along with our existing smaller format CNC router, computer controlled lathe, and computer controlled laser.
This commitment to unsurpassed quality has seen R.A. Colby develop from a small mail order supply house to a major builder of components and complete instruments. One of the most exciting aspects of representing R.A. Colby is the fact that, literally, anything is possible. That statement is not made lightly and a tremendous amount of resources has been invested in making the “impossible” possible.
Let us see if we can make your vision a reality!
