Juan Bansbach, a German technician for an organ factory, arrived in Costa Rica in 1937. He restored the pipe organ of the Catedral Metropolitana and continued developing a company which distributed musical instruments all over the nation.
The firm, Bansbach, is celebrating 75 years as a musical company, promoting its education and sharing the passion for instruments. It is one of the biggest sources of German pride in Costa Rica because of its success.
Juan Bansbach´s family took charge of the company after his death.
This year, the firm also is celebrating the 103rd birthday of Juan Bansbach´s wife, Hilda.
The San José firm provides high quality instruments, music academies and services, the company noted. Its services now include home audio, installation of sound professional devices and technical support for its products and brands, distributed mainly in Costa Rica but also in Nicaragua.
