Orgelbau Waltershausen is an organ building workshop based in Waltershausen , which was founded in 1991. The company has emerged through the restoration of historic organs and through historically oriented new buildings. The focus of activity is on the organ landscape of Thuringia .
The workshop was founded on May 31, 1991 as a company under civil law . As with the Thuringian Rösel & Hercher Orgelbau , the company was only made possible by the German reunification . Co-founders were the organ builders Stephan Krause, Bernhard Kutter, Joachim Stade and Dietmar Ullmann, who had met as journeymen at Rudolf Böhm Orgelbau, Gotha. Stade (born June 8, 1961) was an apprentice at Böhm from 1982 to 1984 and a journeyman from 1985 to 1991. In 1997 he passed the master craftsman examination. Krause (born April 24, 1963 in Erfurt) learned organ building from 1983 to 1986 at VEB Frankfurter Orgelbau Sauer and was then a journeyman at Böhm until 1991. Kutter (born February 12, 1961) was also a journeyman at Böhm before he became managing director of the Waltershausen organ building workshop in 1991 together with Krause and Stade.
The young organ builders familiarized themselves with the classic organ building techniques of the 18th century. Already when the first major new organ was built in 1993 in Völkershausen (Vacha) , a historical tuning based on Georg Andreas Sorge (1764) was set. A move to larger workshop rooms in 1995 led to new opportunities and from February 1, 1996 onwards a new form of company as a GmbH. The restoration of the organ in the town church in Waltershausen from 1995 to 1998 was a defining feature of the company . After Kutter left the company in 2005 and became self-employed in 2006, master organ builders Joachim Stade and Stephan Krause took on responsibility for seven employees as managing directors.
