Georg Rieger

Company founder

„When I finally started my own business, in 1980 with the first reedmaking machines, this happened because of a kind of necessity (I could no longer handle the increasing request for machines and carry on with my full time job at Mercedes), but most of all because of the passion I have for those instruments. Therefore I'm particularly pleased to see that the Rieger Company has grown over the years to be a business that stands for special products of high quality.“

Johann Rieger

Company owner

„I consider myself very fortunate to be able to realize my own visions and quality standards with the help of a pleasant and reliable team.“

1961 -1973

With the first handmade gouging and profiling machines for bassoon Mr. Rieger starts a small manufacture in a shed by his house. Due to a growing production a first extension of the workshop is necessary.
