How Old is my Bentley Piano?

Although the first Bentley pianos appeared in showrooms in 1930, the man behind this popular English make, Douglas Grover, was already a third-generation piano maker. In 1993 Whelpdale Maxwell & Codd, Ltd., acquired the Bentley Piano Company, and production was moved to their factory in South London.

British Piano Manufacturing, Ltd., formed in 2000, today produce Bentley pianos to their original specification in the former Bentley factory in the Cotswold Hills.
