Ibach was a family business with a rich history and tradition.

The Ibach factory was founded in 1798 in Beyenburg (near Dusseldorf) and in 1834 the name Ibach was changed to Rud. Ibach Sohn because Carl Rudolf Ibach became co-owner of the factory.

Historically Ibach has always been an innovative and high-quality company. At the beginning of the 20th century Ibach, with its factories in Berlin, Schwelm and Barmen, was at the absolute top of piano building. After surviving difficult periods, the family business revived in the 60s and 70s. In this period Ibach made instruments of absolute world class.

Since Rolf Ibach entered into a joint venture with the South Korean company Daewoo in 1991, the quality of the instruments has deteriorated and production numbers have fallen sharply.

Ibach ceased to exist in December 2007.
