Steinway & Sons - also known simply as Steinway - is an American and German manufacturer of handmade pianos and purveyor of subcontracted pianos from suppliers sold under the secondary names Boston and Essex. Steinway was founded in Manhattan in 1853 by German immigrant Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg (later known as Henry E. Steinway). The company's growth led to the opening of a factory and 'company town' in what is now Astoria in Queens, New York. A factory was also opened in Hamburg, Germany.
