OSI - Total Pipe Organ Resources
North America's largest and most comprehensive wholesale manufacturer and provider of pipe organ related parts, materials and services.
The kind of time honored skills still practiced daily at OSI sets it far apart from the average shop. The company is a production shop, but first and foremost, it's a shop of craftsmen building custom products to support the pipe organ trade.
The company is justifiably proud of the men and women who make up the OSI team. The average age at OSI is 47. But this shop of experienced craftsmen is continually open to new workers eager to learn the traditional crafts used in manufacturing pipe organ parts. In effect, the shop is an ongoing apprentice program with established artisans teaching aspiring ones.
The company has a deep loyalty to its employees, a fact clearly reflected by the workers' attitude toward their jobs. Being an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan), every employee is an owner with a personal, long term stake in the company's success. Employment records indicate the average length of service stands at 15 years, with the longest service record of 47 years.
OSI was built on the solid foundation of creativity that has thrived for generations in Erie. With that foundation as its base, the company has become a world leader and full service provider to the industry. From its sprawling 50,000 square-foot facility in Erie, PA., OSI is reaching out to the world.
In the company's busy engineering department, state-of-the-art computer systems are used to solve problems for clients and develop products for tomorrow. Through the use of CADD, custom automated machinery and and a sophisticated CNC router OSI is able to provide virtually all components related to the pipe organ with speed, efficiency and quality that is second to none. Here, as throughout the company, the commitment to excellence is ongoing.
