Since 1989, Hailun Chen produced high-quality action parts for Renner, Germany in Ningbo, China. By 1995, he bought out a government, paid his workers a livable wage, and produced high-qulity pianos. Beginning in the mid 2000’s, Hailun Chen assembled a fine team of international technicians, including Stephen Paulello from Germany, Ema Shigeru from Japan, and Frank Emerson from the United States to assist in the design of performance-grade instruments. Hailun pianos feature Wurzen felt hammers from Renner, Germany, Röslau German-made strings, and the highest-quality Austrian spruce soundboards. Hailun pianos play exceptionally well, like performance-grade instruments, and are ranked equal to Kawai and Yamaha, yet boast significantly higher quality components.
