Hailun Piano Factory in Ningbo, China
Hailun Piano's Ningbo factory produces 8,000 pianos per year for the exploding
Chinese domestic market as well as export markets around the world.
Hailun's production processes represent a meticulous balance between stateof-
the-art computer-controlled tooling such as the five-axis CNC machine
shown above and hundreds of man-hours of handwork thoroughly schooled in
European piano making traditions.
Hailun's apprentice program draws the brightest talent from engineering
students at the Ningbo Institute of Technology. Every Hailun worker is
trained for one to four years, depending on the position, before they’re
allowed to work on pianos for the market.
