A late-comer to the industry, The Holland Piano Manufacturing Company was established in 1913 with factories in Menomonie, Wisconsin with head sales offices were in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The firm was established by George P. Norris, President, and Jasper E. Sleeper, Vice President.
The Holland Piano Manufacturing Company built several lines of upright pianos and player pianos, “strictly of the highest grade” according to their sales catalogs. The firm built pianos under both the Holland and the George P. Norris brand names. Unfortunately, Holland built pianos for less than 20 years, going out of business with the Great Depression. The firm was liquidated in 1931.
