Young Chang 

Young Chang is a Korean manufacturer of pianos and industrial wood working machinery, headquartered in Incheon, South Korea. Young Chang also currently holds 50% of the Korean piano market.

Young Chang has more than 2000 full time workers, designing and building its upright and grand pianos.  Young Chang also builds the electronic Kurzweil Music Systems.

Young Chang was founded in 1956 by three brothers, Jai-Young Kim, Jai-Chang Kim and Jai-Sup Kim. As South Korea emerged as a major economy and producer of high quality goods, Young Chang has also emerged as one of the largest manufacturers of quality pianos in the world. It produces and markets the Bergmann, Weber and Pramberger models, and used to manufacture the Essex line for Steinway & Sons.

In 1990, Young Chang purchased Kurzweil Music Systems, a maker of high end electronic and digital musical instruments.

Joseph Pramberger, a former vice president from Steinway & Sons and an experienced piano designer, joined Young Chang in 1995. Pramberger brought many new innovations to piano design, including the "Platinum Touch Action" and the patented asymmetrically tapered soundboard.

In 1998, Young Chang built a new $40 million dollar factory in Tianjin, China to manufacture its new Bergmann line. The Pramberger Platinum series, introduced in 2001 was modeled after Hamburg Steinway’s discontinued Model C piano, and incorporated top quality German materials, and many of Prambergers revolutionary design innovations. This new series, manufactured in Incheon, brought Young Chang into the league of world class piano manufacturers.

Young Chang North America redesigned its product line and introduced new manufacturing processes. Under the guidance of prominent American piano designer Delwin D. Fandrich, the company has revamped its entire piano line while instituting processes to improve both the quality of its production and the sound of its pianos.

Young Chang: high quality pianos for everyone.
