Škrabl is located near the spa town of Rogaska Slatina in eastern Slovenia. Founded in 1990 by master organ builder Anton Škrabl, we design and build mechanical action and electro-mechanical pipe organs of the highest quality. We also restore and renovate organs of all types and sizes and carry out maintenance and servicing.
Our aim is to create instruments of distinctive personality and expressive power which, in sound and appearance, stand in harmony with their surroundings. In short, organs with soul.
Among our 70 employees, many of whom are musicians, are 30 qualified organ builders and our factory is among the best equipped in Europe, with sophisticated machinery and computerised design facilities. The scale of our operation, coupled with labour costs lower than those in most EU countries, enables us to quote competitively.
We have produced instruments for every part of the world, each designed to suit its location and purpose. After meetings with the client, full-size drawings are created and the organ is built to playing condition in our assembly room. The final voicing takes place at the destination.
Because of growing success beyond Slovenia, we have opened agencies in a number of countries to enable us to react speedily to the needs of our customers. Our representative in the UK, Richard Wood, who is highly experienced in all aspects of organ building, is based in West Yorkshire.
We take pride in the praise we receive from clients for the professionalism and quality of our work , but it is the response from organists that matters to us most. They are the ones who unite our product with their skill to create an unforgettable musical experience.
