R.A. Colby has enjoyed a rich and diverse history. Begun in 1974 as an adjunct to a major Pipe Organ Builder, the firm began as a supplier of specialized electrical components to the trade under the name of Kimber-Allen, Inc. Relocation to Tennessee in 1979 saw the growth of the supply endeavors and expansion of the product line to include component construction for the organ building trade.
By 1984, the main focus of the company had become the design and construction of custom components for the pipe organ industry. As a result, the company transitioned to the present name of R.A. Colby, Inc. As the offerings of our company grew, so did our acceptance by the industry. A dedicated floor space was constructed in 2001 to house a new, state of the art, large format computer controlled router along with our existing smaller format CNC router, computer controlled lathe, and computer controlled laser. Our future direction includes building on past successes to move us forward to greater heights.
This commitment to meeting customer requirements with unsurpassed quality has seen us develop from a small mail order supply house to a major builder of components and complete instruments. A major strength of the Colby firm lies in their ability to communicate with customers. Every member of our team prides themselves on providing unsurpassed service in every situation. As trite as it may sound, R.A. Colby does build relationships right along with their products.
Once we have received your initial inquiry, we will begin to focus on your requirements and considerations. This process involves listening to your opinions and perspective as well as considering the environment and utilization of the space. One of the key elements for our review is to retain a broad perspective on the project. We believe that the final installation will serve for many years beyond the time that the principals of the design will be involved.The end result of this overview will be a specific proposal for your situation. We will provide a full detailed presentation that will provide all information on the project and style of construction. As required for clarity of communication, this will be accompanied by full drawings, details and renderings.
As we work through the production of your project, we will keep you abreast of the work with progress updates. The final installation is an exciting event that retains the Colby character. From the complete protection of the existing furnishings, to the alignment of screw heads on retaining panels, Colby attention to detail is unsurpassed.
One of the most exciting aspects of working with R.A. Colby is the fact that, literally, anything is possible. We don't make that statement lightly and have invested a tremendous amount of resources in making it possible. We are committed to not only keeping our trade alive, but to provide improved and expanded services as new production technology can be embraced.
Please, join us in the excitement of working through a project!
