Harmonikas at a glance
Accordion production in Louny has more than a one-hundred-year-old history. In 1894, the first Czech Heligon accordions playing with Dix gera reeds started to be manufactured by Josef Hlaváček. Reeds that were used especially for school instruments, started to be produced in Louny in 1949. Reeds for higher quality instruments were imported from Italian manufacturers.
In 1984, a brand-new factory was built in which reeds for the total production of accordions and harmonicas were produced by Delicia company from Hořovice.
In 1999, there is a fundamental change. The Titlbach family takes over the whole company into its ownership and changes the entire production programme. With the new know-how in technology of precise cutting, profile grinding, electroerosive wire machining, semi-automatic tuning, research and development. Especially, with experience and expertise of the while staff, everything is headed to one objective, namely, to the reeds production for all harmonicas and accordions, and particularly, in all the price lines and qualitative categories.
