Owner and organ builder Allen Moe began tuning and repairing pianos in northern Minnesota
in 1991. Throughout the next several years, he expanded his services to player pianos, reed organs,
and nickelodeons. In mid-1995, Allen accepted a position with the Wicks Organ Company. Over
the next 9 years, Allen worked in their shop learning the art of organ building, while continuing his hobby of piano and reed organ repair. During this time, Allen spent several years working on the service crew and was involved with the tuning and service of hundreds of organs by various builders in the shop territory. Having worked in many departments of the shop, Allen was promoted to Director of Research and Development in 1999. Responsibilities in this position included the testing and troubleshooting of every organ before it left the shop.
In 2004, Allen, along with his wife and office manager Suzanne, returned to Minnesota to establish their own business, Moe Piano & Organ Company. In 2008, the business name was changed to Moe Pipe Organ Company to better reflect the primary focus of the business. Over the last several years, Allen has completed numerous organ projects across Minnesota and surrounding states, ranging from routine repair and cleaning to additions and electrical upgrades, as well as complete organ design, construction and installation.
Larger projects completed to date include: Riverside Lutheran Church, Wannaska, MN; First Lutheran Church, Taylors Falls, MN; Valley Presbyterian Church, Golden Valley, MN; and The Basilica of St Mary, Minneapolis, MN.
