I'm not sure if anyone posted this before, but KHS International of Taiwan,
(who have had a controlling interesting in Hohner since 1997), bought Hohner
outright earlier this year via their USA subsidiary:
"KHS America, Inc. has announced plans to acquire Hohner Inc. from Matth.
Hohner GmbH in Trossingen, Germany .Transfer of ownership will take place
today, January 12, 2015."
Here's a link to the full story:
Strangely, this exciting news is not mentioned on either the KHS or Hohner
Soooo.. Finally the dream has come true: Americans have a (sort-of)
USA-owned harmonica brand to be proud of!
Isn't globalisation a wonderful thing?
