Seiler Pianofortefabrik GmbH
German manufacturer of upright and grand pianos. Company originally founded in Liegnitz in 1849 by Edward Seiler and originally sold pianos branded as Ed. Seiler, production was moved to Denmark in 1946 as the town of Liegnitz was put under Polish control, in 1957 the Seiler moved to Frankfurt in West Germany. After WWII the pianos from the company are usually just branded Seiler.

Although the company is probably as well known these days for making grands they were traditionally best known for the manufacture of quality uprights..

Sejung Musical Instruments Co.
South Korean company with production facilities in China, the company is best known for their pianos and grand pianos that are sold under the George Steck, Falcone, Hobart M. Cable and S.J. Music brands, but the company also manufacture digital pianos, guitars, basses and other stringed folk instruments under the Falcone brand. The company also has a line of budget guitars and basses that are branded Sejung but these are normally not distributed in the West and that name has also appeared on pianos, the company has in the past also sold guitars under the Canvas Guitars and S101 names, the S101 name may still be in use in some parts of the world.

Sejung's guitar plant is based in Qqingdao in China, a location probably chosen since it is as close as you can get to Seoul while still being in the industrial part of China. It is the world’s largest guitar factory and in addition to manufacturing instruments for their own brands they manufacture for a number of other companies including Ibanez, Fender, Washburn and Gibson (sold under the Epiphone brand). If fact for the last few years the company has not been able to meet up with demand despite the size of the place and that may explain why some of their guitar brands have more or less disappeared, since Sejung has concentrated on fulfilling OEM orders rather than pushing its own brands.
Distribution: In Greece by I. Diamantopoulos (Pianos only) and in Turkey by Kivilcim Grup
