BVK hopes to provide greater security for customers and to help German piano’s industry compete with cheaper Asian pianos’ manufacturers.
Almost all from more than 300 companies currently operating in the piano’s industry all over the world claim that their products are manufactured in Germany. In fact, there are only 13 companies that continue the production of high quality instruments. These companies have a manily manual execution, long tradition, experience, prestige and excellent sound quality. These instruments are actually made in Germany. This is what makes the slogan ” Made in Germany” so important for producers of piano in the world.
Majority of global manufacturers of pianos has currently headquarters in China. Creating a new certificate should be verification of the true place of production of instruments .
Although, the new certificate; “Made in Germany” created by BVK lacks legal force, it aims to create more stringent rules than those under German law.
