Simpson & Company
John B. Simpson started in the piano industry as secretary of the Arion Piano Company of New York City. Simpson was also building a small number of pianos under the name of “Simpson & Company” during this time. In about 1870, Simpson purchased the Arion Piano Company, integrating it into the firm of Simpson & Company. Simpson & Company manufactured pianos under the names of “Simpson & Company” as well as “Arion”. Simpson also built a limited number of small, ornately carved upright pianos sold under the “Model Piano” brand name.
