Manhasset Specialty Company, a leading manufacturer of music stands and accessories, is celebrating 85 years of producing quality music stands and accessories for use by budding young musicians to professional musicians who are members of world-famous orchestras all around the world.
The Manhasset Specialty Company dates back to 1935, when inventor/musician Otto Lagervall set out to develop a better music stand. He succeeded in developing the very first Manhasset music stands. His first music stands were produced using the highest quality materials and workmanship, a tradition that still continues today.
When the company was founded, Lagervall lived in Manhasset, NY, adopting the name of that city for his new company. During the 1940s, Lagervall moved the company to Yakima, Washington, where the company continues to make products today.
“Over the years, the company has introduced many new music stand designs and new accessory products that have become great sellers. Numerous production improvements have been made to the company’s manufacturing processes allowing the company to continue producing excellent quality products here in the U.S.A.,” said Dan Roberts, president and general manager of Manhasset Stands. “We are constantly searching for new material improvements and new processes that will help make our great quality music stands even more durable and dependable. As a result, our efforts made it possible for the company to offer a lifetime warranty on our music stands.”
Manhasset Stands is an employee-owned (ESOP) business famous worldwide for its commitment to exceptional quality, according to a company press release. “It is very satisfying to everyone at Manhasset to see its music stands in use on stages in countries around the world. Manhasset promises that there will be a number of surprises coming in 2020. Please stay tuned!” the release stated.
